Zammara smaragdina Walker, 1850  

Zammara smaragdina Walker 1850: 33   . (West coast of America)

Zammara angulosa Walker 1850: 34   . ( Mexico)

REMARKS.—This is the largest of the Ecuadorian species of Zammara   with male body lengths as long as 38 mm (females are smaller with body lengths less than 30 mm in many cases). The species can be distinguished by the bronzing being restricted to the proximal half of the fore wings, the sinusoidal median crossvein, and the infuscation of apical cells 1 connecting across anal cell 2 and apical cell 3 to infuscation on the distal radius posterior and median vein 1 roughly forming an E-shape on the fore wing apex ( Goemans 2016).

DISTRIBUTION.—The species has been recorded from Belize, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, and Venezuela ( Metcalf 1963a; Duffels & van der Laan 1985; Sanborn & Maes 2012; Maes et al. 2012; Sanborn 2013; 2014a; 2018c; Goemans 2016). Goemans (2016) provides information on various collection localities from Esmeraldas, Napo, Orellana   , and Sucumbios provinces in Ecuador. Goding (1925) reported the species from Nannegal (sic), Pichincha province and the environs of Guayaquil, Guayas province.
