BIN (holotype): BOLD:ABZ0453.

Diagnosis

Callipia wojtusiaki   sp. nov. can reliably be separated from the subspecies C. septentrionalis subsp. nov   . and from C. milleri sp. nov. by the geographical distribution and DNA barcoding only. The uncus of C.milleri   sp. nov. tends to be narrower than in the more spatula-shaped uncus of C. wojtusiaki   sp. nov. COI-barcode: the minimum observed distance to the subspecies C. septentrionalis subsp. nov   . is 0.8%, and the minimum observed distance to C.milleri   sp. nov. is 1.7%.

Etymology

The species is named in honour of Janusz Wojtusiak (deceased), Krakow, Poland.

GoogleMaps  

PERU: 1 ♂, Amazonas, Route Moyobamba à Jaén, km 77 , [5.683° S, 77.717° W], 2000 m, 23 Sep. 2003, A. Lévêque leg. ( MNHN) ( C-0017 with GS-318, COI sequence 658 bp, BIN). GoogleMaps  

Distribution

Eastern Andes of southern Ecuador and northern Peru: 1800–2600 m. It seems that C. wojtusiaki   sp. nov. does not occur sympatrically with the subspecies septentrionalis   subsp. nov   ., or with milleri   sp. nov. or sihvoneni   sp. nov.
