status

 

Catasticta marcapita Röber, 1909 

While marcapita roberti  and m. boettgeri are quite stable in pattern, Peruvian m. marcapita  show some degree of variability, especially in the HW postdiscal black band. The band is nearly absent in about 10 % of the individuals examined (see Lamas, 2003: pl. 16, fig. 142), without apparent geographical correlation.

Distribution: Present as separate populations at medium to high elevations (2400– 3100 m) in northern Bolivia and Southern Peru (ssp. marcapita  ), and central Peru (Pasco, ssp. boettgeri; Huánuco, ssp. roberti).
