Durangona tigrina Distant, 1911  

Durangona tigrina Distant 1911: 136   . (Rio Durango, 350 ft, NW Ecuador)

REMARKS.—This is a brownish ochraceous (ochraceous green in fresh specimens) species with a grayish abdomen marked with castaneous and fuscous, the legs appear to be banded by markings, the fore wings have a distinct spot of infuscation on the apex of radius anterior 2, a larger spot extending from the proximal base of radius anterior 2 continuing across the radial crossvein and terminating on the radius posterior, and infuscation on radiomedial crossvein. It can be distinguished from D. exechopyga   n. sp. by the lack of an anterolateral extension of the pronotal collar, the male operculum that reaches medially to the middle of the hind coxa, the posterior timbal cavity is formed as a curled back rim, the distal pygofer shoulder is smoothly curved not reaching to the base of the anal styles, and the median uncus lobe is extended with the lateral branches of the uncus forming a bifurcated terminus in D. tigrina   .

DISTRIBUTION.—The species has been reported from Colombia and Ecuador ( Metcalf 1963c; Sanborn 2013) with a recent addition to Peru ( Sanborn 2020b). Distant (1911) reported the species from Rio Durango, Esmeraldas province.
