Type material

Holotype (revised from photograph from the original description)

ECUADOR • ♂, Arnaud 2018: 4, pl. 1, fig. a; Guayas, Kilometric point 18 Balzar-Quevedo Road; CPFA   .

Type locality

Ecuador, Guayas, Kilometric point 18 Balzar-Quevedo Road.

Distribution

Pacific slope of the Andes, south-central Ecuador ( Fig. 17 View Fig ).

Remarks

The genital morphology of this species remains unknown. We were not able to personally revise specimens of Phanaeus arletteae   . Nevertheless, the external morphology of the holotype and a female paratype were illustrated by Arnaud (2018). We consider that the diagnostic characters provided by Arnaud (2018) are adequate to separate this species from closely related taxa. The commentaries of previous authors confirmed the validity of this species ( Martínez & Pereira 1967; Edmonds 1994; Arnaud 2002b; Edmonds & Zídek 2012). Particularly, the morphology of the pronotum of the female is unique within the P. endymion   species group.
