Diagnosis

Callipia sihvoneni sp. nov. is a medium sized species of Callipia that was identified as C.parrhasiata in many museum collections. The costal area of the forewing is conspicuously striated / spotted and the apical dark brown area is usually not divided as in C. wojtusiaki sp. nov. and C. milleri sp. nov. COIbarcode: the minimum observed distance to the genetically most similar species ( C.milleri sp. nov.) is 4.1%. Callipia sihvoneni sp. nov. can most reliably be distinguished from the closely related C. wojtusiaki septentrionalis subsp. nov . and C. milleri sp. nov. by DNA-barcoding.

Etymology

The species is named in honour of Pasi Sihvonen, Veikkola, Finland.

Paratypes

COLOMBIA: 1 ♂, 1 ♀, same data as for holotype ( ZSM) ( C-0419 ; C-0420 ); 11 ♂♂, Bogotá, Le Moult leg. ( PMJ, ZSM) ( C-0003 with GS-110, COI sequence: 553 bp, BIN; C-0377 ; C-0378 with GS-385; C-0379; 0380; 0382 ; C-0383 with GS-096; C-0384; 0427; 0428 ); 1 ♂, same data as previous, but 3200 m ( ZSM) ( C-0091 ); 1 ♂, Choco près [near] Bogota ( ZSM) ( C-0373 ); 3 ♂♂, Pueblo Guasca , Bogota ( USNM) ( C-0385–0387 ); 2 ♂♂, Pacho, Ost Kord.

Other material examined

COLOMBIA: 1 ♂, Cauca, Jiminez, 1600 ft [488 m] [doubtful elevation, not considered for distribution] ( ZSM) ( C-0376 ); 5 ♂♂, Tolima, Nevado del Tolima , 2600–2850 m ( ZSM) ( C-0398–C-0402 ).

Description

Male and female as illustrated.

Distribution

Western and eastern Cordillera of central and southern Colombia, 2200–3200 m. It has the northernmost distribution of all species of Callipia . It seems not to occur sympatrically with C. wojtusiaki septentrionalis subsp. nov ., and might therefore only be confused with the sympatrically occurring C. milleri sp. nov.
