Proarna insignis Distant, 1881a 

Proarna albida var. insignis Distant 1881a: 12  . ( Nicaragua)

REMARKS.—This species can be variable in size (body lengths 20–24 mm) even within a single population but it is the smallest of the Ecuadorian Proarna  species. Body coloration is variable within the species ranging from green to brown marked with piceous forming a well-camouflaged animal in its natural habitat. Specimens often possess a longitudinal piceous or dark brown facia on the dorsal head and prothorax. Macular infuscation is almost complete on the fore wings venation. The species has been associated with grasses in cloud forest habitats within the lower levels of the Yungas floristic province in Argentina ( Sanborn et al. 1995 a; 2011a). The endothermy exhibited by the species ( Sanborn et al. 1995 a) permits activity without access to solar radiation in this habitat. Large numbers of the species are commonly collected at lights with a heavy female bias (Young & Sanborn 2015).

DISTRIBUTION.—The species has an extensive range being reported from Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panamá, Peru, and Venezuela ( Metcalf 1963a; Duffels & van der Laan 1985; Sanborn 2011a; 2013; 2014a; 2018c; 2019b; 2020b; Sanborn & Maes 2012; Maes et al. 2012; Sanborn & Heath 2014) with recent records expanding the distribution to Bolivia ( Sanborn 2019b). Goding (1925) reported the species from Baños, Tungurahua province.
