16 Catasticta duida Brown, 1932  (TL: Venezuela, Mt. Duida  )

(fig. 10: g-h; fig. 27)

Catasticta duida  was described from Mt. [Cerro] Duida  (Amazonas, ~ 3 ° 21 ’N, 65 ° 40 ’W) on the basis of 7 males and 2 females, plus 1 male from Mt. Roraima ( Brazil). Recently we examined 6 males in MIZA that were collected on Cerro Yutajé (Amazonas: 5 ° 45 ’N, 66 ° 6 ’W), Kukenán Tepui (Bolívar: 5 ° 19 ’N, 60 ° 49 ’W) and Kamarkabarac Tepui (Bolívar: 5 ° 59 ’N, 62 °01’W). These data suggest that C. duida  likely occurs on most Venezuelan tepuis higher than 1700–1800 m. In spite of the isolation of these populations from each other, there is no evidence of subspecific differentiation. Catasticta duida  was filmed by a Japanese group on top of Cerro de La Neblina (Amazonas: ~ 0° 48 ’N, 66 °01’W) (A. Orellana, pers. comm.).
