Argia huanacina Förster 1914: 67  , 68 [5, 6 separate], (description of ♂, " Heimat: Ob. Madre de Dios, Peru, 500 m s. m. 1 ♂ ad. Marcapata, Peru. ♂, ♀. Typen in meiner Sammlung."); Schmidt 1942: 233 ( Peru); Soukup 1954: 11 ( Peru); Rácenis 1959: 475 ( Peru); Butt 1995: 96 (Tambopata, Peru); Garrison et al. 2003: 31 (type catalog); Heckman 2008: 366 (key, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia); Hoffmann 2009: 27, 38 ( Peru); Garrison & von Ellenrieder 2015: 25 (key, illustration of mesostigmal plates, appendages).

Types. of huanacina  : 2 ♂♂, 1 ♀ syntypes. ♂: PERU / Maracapata; F. Forster / Collection; Argia  / huanacina Forster  TYPE ♂ / 1914. Beitrage Gatt. u. Art. Lib. / (III) Arch. Nat. Jahrg. 80A 2:67–68 [3 labels by L.K. Gloyd]; ♂: Argia Forster  /huanacina n. sp. / Type and Ob[ere] Madre de Dios /Peru 500 m [labels F. Forster pasted on envelope]; ♀: same data as first ♂. The original envelope next to the first (pinned) syntype has the following in Forster's hand: M. [in red ink] Argia  ♀ [sic, in pencil], huanacina / ♀. An added notation by L. K. Gloyd states: ♂ was in this / envelope. L.K. Gloyd 1933. On the other side of the envelope is the following in Förster's hand: ♂ [undecipherable] M / [undecipherable] III / [undecipherable letters] (examined; Garrison et al. 2003: 31).

Specimens examined (only those from Ecuador listed). 1 ♂, Zamora-Chinchipe Prov.: stream, north side of Guaguayme Bajo (3°54'30" S, 78°52'12" W), 2008 April 4, K. J. Tennessen leg. [ FSCA]GoogleMaps  .

Remarks: This species was treated and illustrated in Garrison & von Ellenrieder (2015). von Ellenrieder & Garrison (2007) followed by Heckman (2008) illustrated the appendages of a male in the RBINS with the manuscript name " lateralis " by Selys as A. huanacina  . This is incorrect. Subsequent examination of these specimens showed the manuscript name lateralis Selys to represent A. infrequentula  as can be seen by comparing Figs. 6View FIGURES 1–8 l-n from von Ellenrieder & Garrison (2007) and Fig. 3.1. 427 in Heckman (2008) to Figs. 10 lView FIGURES 9–13 2View FIGURES 1–8 and 10 pView FIGURES 9–13 2View FIGURES 1–8 in Garrison & von Ellenrieder (2015).

This species is most similar to A. selysi  and is diagnosed under that species. Though largely allopatric with A. selysi  , a male A. huanacina  has been collected in southern Ecuador ( Fig. 140View FIGURES 140–141) representing a new record for that country.
