Cuenca is a city located  south of Ecuador at 2500 m.,  in an inter-Andean valley surrounded by the Western and Eastern mountain ranges of the Andes. We have decided to investigate the entomofauna that exists in the city focusing on urban and peri-urban environments, here we will publish the preliminary results of this project.
