I was lucky enough to go on a weeklong trip to French Guiana from 1-8 October 2010. I tagged along with a group of serious entomologists, mostly associated with Yale's Peabody Collection. We largely patrolled the grounds and nearby forest of our lodge, the Amazone Nature Lodge located on Kaw Mountain at about 3000 feet elevation. Kaw Mountain is really a long ridge, and we searched both during the day in various habitats plus at night using mercury-vapor lamps. I mostly worked with Mike (see list below) as we tried various trails and streams either at the lodge or up to 6 km away. One day we took a boat trip on the Kaw River near the "town" of Kaw (7 Oct).
List of collectors, all dedicated entomologists:
Bill and Suzanne Krinsky
Leonard and Maya Munstermann
Vic and Roanna DeMasi
Most of the posed stuff was either caught by net in the field or came of one of the sheets at night.
Thanks to the following for ID help:
Beetles and insects in general: Bill Krinsky
Cerambycids: Roy Morris
Odonates: Marcel Wasscher
Birds and odonates: Dennis Paulson
