Diagnosis. Male: Forewing length 12mm. Nudum unknown. DFW apex pointed, brand large, subapical spot yellowish, large, in R 5 -M 1. VFW apical and marginal areas distinctly lighter than costa and cellular areas. VHW with several nonaligned reddish spots. Median apophyses of tegumen reduced, thin, simple; lateral processes pointed. Harpe thin, sharply angled. Ventro-posterior end of aedeagus truncated.

Studied material: Colombia, Cundinamarca, Guasca-Gachetá, 2500m 10 -VII-1984, 1 male, DZUP 18.179. Facatativa, Vereda La Tribuna, Finca El Triunfo, 04° 52 ' 18.6 "N 74 ° 24 ' 43.8 "W, 2826m, 2 -VII- 2015, E. Henao leg., 1 female, CEH-085. Interior of Colombia, Wheeler leg., 1 male, BMNH. Colombie, Env. Bogotá, Frére Apollinaire Marie leg., 1918, 1 female, BMNH.

Types: Holotype male of Zalomes kenava tassa  in BMNH and holotype female of Dalla curia  in BMNH.

Remarks. The study of the holotypes of Dalla curia  and Zalomes kenava tassa  confirms the new synonym. In reviewing the holotype of Dalla curia Evans, 1995  it was realized that the specimen antennae and wing markings are consistent with diagnostic characters of Wahydra  . Additionally, its peculiar forewing apex and geographical distribution corroborate this new synonymy.
