Callipia brenemanae Sperry, 1951  

Figs 55–58 View Figs 49–58 , 64 View Figs59–66

Assigned BIN: BOLD:AAF5629.

Diagnosis

The base of forewing veins CuA2, CuA1 and often M3 are covered with dark brown scales in brenemanae   , particularly at the wing base. Only specimens of C. occulta   stat. rev. show a similar pattern, but it is weaker and only true for vein CuA2. COI-barcode: the minimum observed distance to the genetically most similar species ( C.constantinaria   ) is 3.9%.

Type material

Holotype ( Fig. 55 View Figs 49–58 ) BOLIVIA: ♂, [Cochabamba department], Yungas del Palmar , 2000 m, 15 Mar. 1949 ( AMNH) ( C-0129 with GS-302).  

Paratypes

BOLIVIA: 8 ♂♂, 4 ♀♀, same locality as holotype [Cochabamba Department], Chapare ( AMNH, NHM, private collections), among them one ♀ designated as allotype ( C-0130 with GS, Fig. 56 View Figs 49–58 ; and one ♂, C-0131, Fig. 57 View Figs 49–58 ).
