Diagnostic description. Defined by the following combination of characters: (1) MF DFW white apical ocelli medium-small. (2) MF DFW orange band moderately wide (in one specimen from Santarém, this band is quite wide, reaching the discal cell); in the M orange scales somewhat extended proximally along veins. (3) M DFW iridescent band from anal margin to approximately half of the CuA2 cell, usually with discrete edges, but in some specimens the iridescence fades anteriorly towards CuA2. F DFW iridescent band more diffuse and narrower than that of actorion , especially noticeable below CuA2 where the iridescence is less extended towards the tornus. (4) M DFW androconial organ on Cu-CuA2 pale, contrasting scale color of surrounding area. (5) DHW discal androconial pad usually cream, sometimes light brown. (6) DHW discal hairpencil cream to light brown. (7) F VFW ripple pattern similar to that of M.

Etymology. This subspecies is named after the Tapajós, indigenous people from the Amazonian region.

Distribution and examined specimens. Fig. 12 View FIGURE 12 and Appendix.

Remarks. Two females from Brazil, Tocantins, Ilha do Bananal were tentatively identified as rebeli tapajos based on locality, given that no corresponding males have been collected in that area.
