( Fig. 4 View Figure )

Castnia rubrophalaris Houlbert, 1917 

Taxonomic history. Typical specimens of his species can be easily distinguished from typical Synpalamides phalaris  based mainly in color differences. It was originally described by Houlbert (1917) from Brazil, Bahia as Castnia rubrophalaris  . It was later placed in the genus Sympalamides [sic] ( Houlbert 1918). Rothschild (1919) mentions the species [as Castnia  (Sympalamides [sic]) mygdon  form rubrophalaris Houlbert  ) collected in November, 1903, from Sapucay, Paraguay.

Distribution. The species is distributed in Southern Brazil, but reaches Paraguay, however there is a report of at least one specimen supposedly collected in Venezuela ( Joicey & Talbot, 1925; Lamas 1995; Miller 1986, 1995)

Biology and behavior. It has been collected in Atlantic Forest in the areas of occurrence in Paraguay, where it is possible to find specimens perching on leaves of bushes or small size plants ( Fig. 21 View Figure ). Ulf Drechsel (pers. comm.) mentions that Synpalamides rubrophalaris  is relatively common in the Atlantic Forest of the Alto Paraná Department. The hosts are Unknown.
