Callipia intermedia Dognin, 1914 stat. rev.

Figs 70–72 View Figs 67–74 , 76–78 View Figs 75–80

Assigned BIN: BOLD:AAI3928.

Diagnosis

Ground colour a little bit less intense, less pink and more reddish than in parrhasiata . The cream white margin of the hindwing underside is broader than in parrhasiata . Light ochreous costal area of forewing upperside less extended than in C. karsholti sp. nov. COI-barcode: the minimum observed distance to the genetically most similar species ( C. jonai sp. nov.) is 2.7%.

Type material

A series of 6 syntypes (males) from Ecuador, Loja; and Peru, [Puno], Carabaya, Limbari [correct: Limbani ], and Agualani ( USNM). These six specimens are not conspecific; the two Ecuadorian specimens (C-0019; C-0357) are assigned to C. wojtusiaki sp. nov. (see there). Specimens from Limbani were indicated by Dognin (1914) as ‘type’, and therefore a specimen from this locality is selected as lectotype ( C-0327 with GS-296, Figs 71 View Figs 67–74 , 76 View Figs 75–80 ; the other C-0329). Two specimens are from from Agualani (C-0328 with GS-283; C-0330).

Other material examined

PERU: 2 ♂♂, Cusco, Ollantaytambo-Quillabamba R[oa]d, km 158, 2945 m ( AMNH) ( C-0030 with GS-393, COI barcode 615 bp, BIN; C-0059 , COI barcode 658 bp, BIN); 1 ♂, Cusco, Valle de Marcapata ( USMSM) ( C-0347 ); 1 ♂, Cusco, 8 km SW of Quillabamba, 1130 m ( AMNH) ( C-0018 , COI sequence 464 bp, BIN); 2 ♂♂, [Cusco], Paucartambo ( ZMUC) ( C-0097 with GS-406, Figs 70 View Figs 67–74 , 78 View Figs 75–80 ; C-0341); 3 ♂♂, Madre de Dios, Tambopata Preserve, Explorer’s Inn , 200 m [probably wrong locality/elevation, not considered in distribution] ( AMNH) ( C-0031 with GS 407, COI sequence 658 bp, BIN, Figs 72 View Figs 67–74 , 77 View Figs 75–80 ; C-0350; C-0351 , COI sequence 307 bp); 1 ♂, Puno, 5 km E of Limbani, 3000 m ( ZMUC) ( C-0029 , COI barcode 658 bp, BIN); 1 ♂, [Puno], Carabaya, Limbari [correct: Limbani ] ( MHNH) ( C-0348 ); 15 ♂♂, [Puno], Carabaya, Agualani , 9000 ft ( AMNH, PMJ, RCGB, SMF, ZSM) ( C-0331–0346 ).

Distribution

Eastern Andes of south eastern Peru, 1100–3000 m.

Remarks

The species was described as subspecies of C. parrhasiata, but is clearly an independant species. The six syntypes belong to two different taxa (see above).
