Catasticta paucartambo ( Eitschberger & Racheli, 1998) Comb.  et stat. nov.

A medium­sized species. Female unknown. FW with acute apex and scalloped outer margin, indented at M 2 ­M 3. HW with smooth outer margin and rounded anal lobe.

Described by Eitschberger & Racheli (1998) as a subspecies of Catasticta marcapita Röber  , apparently not realizing that it overlaps in range with C. marcapita marcapita  . We consider it a species due to its different wing pattern and sympatry with marcapita  . The holotype of paucartambo  was collected 15 km NE of Paucartambo  , Cuzco, at 3100 m, nearly at the same spot where marcapita  was recently caught by T. Pyrcz (pers. comm.).

Distribution: High elevations from northern Bolivia to southern Peru (Cuzco).
