HILJE, Luko. Sobre terminología errónea en publicaciones entomológicas. Rev. biol. trop [online]. 2011, vol.59, n.3, pp.999-1006. ISSN 0034-7744.

On some misused terms in entomological publications. A glossary is presented, despite being a non-exhaustive one, which includes a little  more than one hundred terms frequently misused in entomological publications. They are organized in accordance to their degree of acceptance by  the Real Academia Española. Each one is accompanied by its correct alternative (sometimes with a brief justification of the suggested term), and  its proper use is illustrated with an example. Moreover, in addition to idiomatic mistakes themselves, a brief list of rather common conceptual  mistakes is included, which correct use is explained. Rev. Biol. Trop. 59 (3): 999-1006. Epub 2011 September 01.

Keywords : entomology; terminology; concepts; language; Spanish.
