Type material. Telemiades xantho Hayward, 1939   was described based on the male holotype from Misiones, Argentina. The male holotype is deposited at the IML with the following labels: / Misiones Hayward./ HOLOTIPO/ TIPUS/ Telemiades xantho Hayw. Holotipo   ♂./ No. 95 K. J. Hayward det./ Prep 375./.

Diagnosis. FW length: males 16–18 mm (n=26) and females 18–21 mm. Telemiades xantho   is distinguished from the remaining species of “ amphion   group” by the following characters: tegumen with apophysis slightly dorsally curved; harpe with a developed spine–like projection; lamela antevaginalis with lateral expansion broader than in Telemiades austini   sp. nov.. Additionally, T. xantho   has its distribution in Atlantic Forest areas. Besides the sympatric distribution, the females from T. xantho   are similar with females from T. atlantiope   sp. nov. but it could be distinguished by the broader apical hyaline spots in FW and by the dark spot in CuA 2 –2A in VFW.

Variation. Somes specimens varies on the ground color.

Distribution. Telemiades xantho   occurs in Atlantic forest and southern Amazonia forest areas, with records in the brazilian states of Bahia, Espírito Santo, Mato Grosso, Minas Gerais, Rio de Janeiro, Paraná and Santa Catarina, and in Misiones, Argentina.

Taxonomic discussion. Hayward (1939) described Telemiades xantho   and Evans (1953) considered it as a synonym of T. avitus   . Despite the phenotypic similarity between the two species, the analysis of the holotype of T. xantho   and the illustration of the male genitalia ( Hayward 1939: 430, fig. 1), together with other morphological characters (see diagnosis), are sufficient to revalidate T. xantho   .

Examined material. No data: 1 male, 59/871 (MNRJ); 1 male, ex–coll. J. Arp, 58/355 (MNRJ).
