BIN (holotype): BOLD:ABY4709.

Diagnosis

Most similar to C.intermedia stat. rev. (sympatric distribution), but ground colour light rosy with an extended light ochreous costal area on the forewing upperside. Similarly as in C. intermedia stat. rev., but different from C. parrhasiata, male aedeagus with a few small cornuti. COI-barcode: the minimum observed distance to the genetically most similar species ( C.intermedia stat. rev.) is 2.8%.

Etymology

The species is named in honour of Ole Karsholt ( ZMUC), Copenhagen, Denmark, who collected the type specimens in Peru.

Type material

Holotype ( Figs 73 View Figs 67–74 , 79 View Figs 75–80 ) PERU: ♂, Puno, 5 km E of Limbani, 3000 m, 14.125° S, 69.682° W, 28 Mar. 1987, O. Karsholt leg. ( ZMUC) ( C-0033 with GS-304, COI sequence 615 bp, BIN). GoogleMaps

Paratypes PERU: 1 ♂, Cusco, Cosñipata, 13.140° S, 71.584° W, 2240 m, 23. Aug. 2016 GoogleMaps , D. Bolt leg. ( PMJ) (Pe- Geo-1162); GoogleMaps 1 ♂, Cusco, Cosñipata, 13.140° S, 71.584° W, 2250 m, 23. Aug. 2016, M. Nuss leg. ( MTD) ( C-0477 , Pe-Geo-1141 GoogleMaps ).

Other material examined

PERU: 1 ♂, Huánuco, 15: 25 km NE of Huánuco, Cordillera Carpish, Pattytrail , 2500 m, 8–10 Nov. 1987, O. Karsholt leg. ( ZMUC) ( C-0349 with GS-323, COI sequence 251 bp, Figs 74 View Figs 67–74 , 80 View Figs 75–80 ). Because of the different sampling location in central Peru, the assignment of this specimens to karsholti sp. nov. is provisional until more material can be examined.

Description

As illustrated.

Distribution

Eastern Andes of south eastern Peru, 2240–3000 m.
