My main interest is to learn more about the ecology, distribution and taxonomy of the representatives of the Simuliidae family and their relationship with man. From all this I intend to know more about the distribution of species in general and those of medical-veterinary interest in particular as well as to be able to define and continue with the identification work since the family presents numerous species complexes which represent a Excellent opportunity to work in the group's taxonomy.
