Henricus parotanus Razowski & Becker, 2010: 435  .

Henricus parotanus  was described from a male and a female from Cofre de Parote, Veracruz, Mexico. Razowski and Becker (2010) commented “Facies resembling Rhyacionia Hubner  [1925].” The forewing shape (long and slender) and maculation ( Rhyacionia  or Retinia  -like), the absence of a cornutus in the vesica, and the absence of a hair pencil from the base of the valva in the male genitalia all deviate from most species of Henricus  . In facies and genitalia (male and female), Henricus parotanus  (see Razowski and Becker 2010: figs. 1, 2, 23, 29, 30) is extremely similar to Eupinivora rufofascia Brown, 2013  (see Brown 2013: figs. 8, 14, 18). On the basis of these similarities, parotanus  is transferred to Eupinivora  . Eupinivora parotanus  can be separated from E. rufofascia  by the following features of the male genitalia: in E. parotanus  the spines from the sacculus are shorter than those of E. rufofascia  ; in E. rufofascia  the distal portion of the median process of the transtilla has an abruptly attenuate distal process in the apical 0.2 compared to the evenly rounded apex of E. parotanus  ; and in E. rufofascia  the phallus has a strong internal sclerite that is absent in E. parotanus  . The addition of E. parotanus  to the genus increases the known geographic distribution of Eupinivora  to the state of Veracruz, Mexico, and the elevational range to 3300 m.
