Diagnosis

Callipia occulta   stat. rev. was put into synonymy with C. constantinaria   by Parsons et al. (1999), following Prout’s catalogue in the British Museum (Natural History). However, the yellow blotch on the forewing is much more restricted in C. constantinaria   than in C. occulta   stat. rev., moreover, C.constantinaria   appears to be a bit smaller than C. occulta   stat. rev. The comparison of the genitalia is not possible since the final segments of the abdomen are missing in the holotype of C. constantinaria. Barcoding revealed two different BINs of C. constantinaria -like species from Peru. C. occulta   stat. rev. and C. hiltae   sp. nov. form a cryptic species complex, see C. hiltae   sp. nov. COI-barcode: the minimum observed distance to the genetically most similar species ( C.aurata   ) is 3.4%.

Description

As illustrated.

Distribution

Eastern Andes of Ecuador and N and Central Peru, 1500–2800 m.

Remarks

The taxon C. hamaria, originally described as a form of C. constantinaria by Sperry (1951), actually very closely resembles C. occulta   stat. rev.; both are from Peru. While Parsons et al. (1999) treated C.hamaria   as a junior synonym of C. constantinaria, I treat it here as junior synonym of C. occulta   stat. rev.
