BIN (holotype): BOLD:AAF5633.

Diagnosis

Callipia walterfriedlii   sp. nov. has a similar wing shape and size like C. vicinaria   . Diagnosis from C. hausmanni   sp. nov., see there. Males tend to have a more contrasting pattern than C. vicinaria   , particularly on the forewing costal area. The white transversal band on the hindwing is broader than in C. vicinaria   . The females are very similar, but the extent of the ochreous colour in the forewing is larger. The uncus tends to be broader than in C. vicinaria. COI-barcode: the minimum observed distance to the genetically most similar species ( C.vicinaria   ) is 3.3%.

Etymology

The species is named in honour of Walter Friedli, Schwarzenburg, Switzerland.
