Figs 86–87 View Figs81–87 , 93 View Figs88–93 , 125 View Figs 124–130 , 135–137 View Figs 131–138

Assigned BIN: BOLD:AAI3929.

Diagnosis

Callipia augustae   sp. nov. is unique in having spotted wing pattern pattern elements, i.e., the fine light ochreous striae that are found in most other species of Callipia   are mostly widened to small spots. The spine-like processes on the ventral margin of the valvae are very small. COI-barcode: the minimum observed distance to the genetically most similar (but not similar looking) species ( C.flagrans   ) is 2.6%.

Etymology

The species is named in honour of Augusta Albrecht, Friedrichshafen, Germany.

Description

Male and female as illustrated.

Distribution

Eastern Andes of southern Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia, 1900–3100 m.

Remarks

Two living males are illustrated in Figs 135 and 137 View Figs 131–138 . The conspicuous colours are only displayed when the moths are active. The habitat is shown in Fig. 136 View Figs 131–138 . It is remarkable that one of the apparently most common species of Callipia   was undescribed until now.
