Carineta verna Distant, 1883

Carineta verna Distant 1883: 20 . (4000–6000 ft on Volcan Chiriqui, Panama)

Remarks. This species is second of the three, large primarily greenish Carineta species found in Panama. It is the smallest of the three species with a body length of approximately 20 mm and a wingspan of 63 mm ( Distant 1883) and differs in the castaneous head, the dull ochraceous mesothorax marked with piceous, and the pale castaneous abdomen, the greater amount of pile particularly on the ventral head and body. It can be distinguished from C. viridicata by the larger body size (24–27mm) and a wingspan (64–74 mm), the head and thorax are bright green with a more elongated green and pale ochraceous abdomen, the fore wing ulnar cell 2 is about two-thirds the length of ulnar cell 1, and the male opercula are widely separated C. viridicata . It differs from C. aestiva in the deeply sulcate postclypeus, the more angled lateral prothorax, the transverse fuscous stripe on the anterior pronotal collar, the dark ochraceous mesothorax and castaneous abdomen, the greater amount of pile especially on the ventral head and body, and the fore wing ulnar cell 2 is about seven-eighths the length of ulnar cell 1 in C. aestiva .

Distribution. This species has been reported previously from Costa Rica and Panama ( Metcalf 1963c; Sanborn 2013; 2014). It has been reported from Volcan de Chiriqui in Panama ( Distant 1883). It was reported as being collected in Panama by Wolda & Ramos (1992) but without locality data.
