Fidicina ethelae ( Goding, 1925)   new record

Majeorona ethelae Goding 1925: 23   . (Quito and Macas, Ecuador)

REMARKS. Fidicina ethelae   is generally larger than F. mannifera   and F. christinae   with a wingspan greater than 130 mm but is similar in size to F. robini Boulard & Martinelli, 1996   . The species can be distinguished further by the timbal cover of the male extending below the metascutellar plate, the male operculum being an approximate right triangle, the fore femora proximal and apical spines being angled with respect to the femoral axis, and the lateral branch of the uncus is recurved.

DISTRIBUTION. The species has been reported previously from Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Panama, Peru, and Venezuela ( Metcalf 1963a; Sanborn 2013; 2014a; 2018c).
