Figs 100–101 View Figs 94–101 , 106–107 View Figs 102–107

BIN (holotype): BOLD:AAI3924.

Diagnosis

Closest relative of C. wojtusiaki sp. nov. and C.wojtusiaki septentrionalis subsp. nov . The geographical range overlaps with the latter. The male uncus is narrower than in C. wojtusiaki sp. nov. The wing patterns do not offer reliable diagnostic characters. COI-barcode: the minimum observed distance to C.milleri sp. nov. is 1.0%.

Etymology

The species is named in honour of James S. Miller (AMNH), USA.
