Polythoridae 

Cora brasiliensis Montgomery, 1967  . Synonym of Cora inca Selys, 1854  .

Cora cyane Selys, 1853  . Synonym Cora incana Hagen in Selys, 1869  . Publ. Recs. ECU: (H08). Also VEN: (H08), (P11). We are not sure of the source of information that (H08) used for the Ecuador record. Since there are no modern records in Ecuador, it is not included in our list until a voucher specimen or verifiable record is obtained.

Cora mirabilis (McLachlan, 1878)  . See Euthore mirabilis McLachlan, 1878  .

Cora modesta Selys, 1869  . Listed from Ecuador in Campos (1922), “pers. comm. Dr. Martin”, Bick & Bick (1990a) and “?” Tsuda (1991). Selys (1873a) listed it in the generic summary from “Quito” but in the discussion he listed it only from Bogotá, Colombia. (P16) listed it only from Colombia. We have not been able to resolve this record; therefore it is not included in our list until a verifiable record from Ecuador is obtained.

Euthore fasciata  inlactea Calvert, 1909. Synonym of Euthore fasciata Hagen in Selys, 1853  .

Euthore fasciata  form plagiata Selys, 1873  . Synonym of Euthore fasciata Hagen in Selys, 1853  .

Euthore fasciata  form sulfurata De Marmels, 1982. Synonym of Euthore fasciata Hagen in Selys, 1853  .

Euthore hyalina ( Selys, 1853)  , as “ thore hyalina  ” from “ Bahia ” which was presumed to be Brazil, but Bridges (1993) suggested it “might be Bahia de Carraquez, Ecuador.” Lectotype by Montgomery (1967) [IRSN]. Also BRA, COL, PER: ( P11). We think that “ Bahia ” was actually in Brazil, since the Ecuadorian location proposed by Montgomery (1967) is on the Pacific coast totally disjunct from the other recorded localities of this species. It is not included in our list until a verifiable record is obtained.

Euthore plagiata Selys, 1873  . Synonym of Euthore fasciata Hagen in Selys, 1853  .

Josocora jocosa (McLachlan, 1881)  . See Cora jocosa McLachlan, 1881  .

Josocora klenei (Karsch, 1891)  . See Cora klenei Karsch, 1891  .

Miocora subapicalis Kennedy, 1940  . Possible synonym of Miocora peraltica Calvert, 1917  .

Polythore albovittata (Selys, 1873)  . Synonym of Polythore vittata (Selys, 1869)  .

Polythore beata McLachlan, 1869  as Thore beata  . Campos (1922) listed it from Ecuador: “pers. comm. Dr. Martin.” Also Schmidt (1942). Bick & Bick (1986) stated that all west slope records are doubtful. Lencioni (2005), (H08), (P11), and Rojas-Riano (2011a) did not list it but did report it from Brazil, Columbia and Peru. Type locality is “Pebas, upper amazon” which is in Peru (McLachlan 1869). It is not included in our list. If it occurs in Ecuador, it would be in the eastern lowlands.

Polythore derivata  derivata Fraser, 1946  . Synonym of Polythore derivata (McLachlan, 1881)  .

Polythore derivata race adjuncta Fraser, 1946  . Synonym of Polythore derivata (McLachlan, 1881)  .

Polythore derivata race ambigua Fraser, 1946  . Synonym of Polythore derivata (McLachlan, 1881)  .

Polythore derivata  prisinata Fraser, 1946. Synonym of Polythore derivata (McLachlan, 1881)  .

Polythore derivata  terminata Fraser, 1946  . Synonym of Polythore terminata Fraser, 1946  .

Polythore picta (Rambur, 1842)  . Publ. Recs. ECU: Hagen (1875), Montgomery (1967), Geijskes (1971), Paulson (1983), Tsuda, (1986, 1991), Steinmann (1997a). IM: McLachlan (1878). Neither Bick & Bick (1985), (L05), (H08) nor (P11) list it from Ecuador. (L05) listed it from Brazil, Peru, Guyana & and French Guyana. Due to the confusion with procera  and vittata  , we do not think that P. picta  occurs in Ecuador.

Polythore picta race originata Fraser, 1946  . Synonym of Polythore derivata (McLachlan, 1881)  .

Sapho pulchella Kirby, 1889  . Synonym of Polythore concinna (McLachlan, 1881)  .
