Type material. Achlyodes oiclus Mabille, 1889  was described based on one female [holotype] from Chiriqui [ Panama] in the Otto Staudinger collection. The female holotype is deposited at the ZMHU with the following labels: / Origin./ Chiriqui Fr./ Achl. oiclus Mb.  ♀ / Achlyodes oiclus B. C. A. Rh. Ii.  p. 396./ oiclus Mab.  / GEN. PREP., MIELKE 1996/.

Pyrdalus corbulo cora Evans, 1953  , was described based on the male [holo]type from Honduras, and on a couple from the same locality. The male holotype is deposited at the NHMUK with the following labels: / Type [verso from the same label:] cora Evans/ Honduras [verso from the same label:] 45 123/ Honduras. Dyson. 45–123./ [label with genitalia attached]/ BMNH(E) 1236499/.

Diagnosis. FW length: males 19 mm (n=1) and females 21 mm (n=1). Telemiades oiclus  is distinguished from other species of the genus by the following characters: VFW of males with a dark yellow androconial patch in CuA 2 –2A; DHW with a tuft of long cream hair–like scales in Sc+R 1 –Rs; oval yellowish patch under the tuft of androconial scales; yellowish patch covering more than posterior half of VHW; uncus with distal margin convex.

Natural history. Immatures have been reported on Dioclea malacocarpa  and D. wilsonii  ( Fabaceae  ) ( Janzen & Hallwachs 2009). Burns & Janzen (2005) and Janzen & Hallwachs (2009) illustrated all the immature stages of T. oiclus  .

Distribution. Telemiades oiclus  occurs in Central America, with records in Honduras, Costa Rica, and Panama.

Taxonomic discussion. After its description, Achlyodes oiclus Mabille, 1889  was transferred to Ouleus Lindsey, 1925  by Shepard (1934). Later, Steinhauser (1989) returned the species to Achlyodes Hübner, [1819]  . Evans (1953) erroneously interpreted Achlyodes oiclus  as a subspecies of Bolla phylo  . Analysis of the material deposited in the NHMUK, revealed that the specimen studied by Evans is Staphylus lizeri album Steinhauser, 1989  . In the same study, Evans (1953) described Pyrdalus corbulo cora  . Recently, Burns & Janzen (2005) transferred the name oiclus  to Telemiades  and synonymized P. c. cora with T. oiclus  . The examination of the holotype of P. c. cora confirms the synonymy. As discussed by Burns & Janzen (2005), T. oiclus  forms a subgroup of Telemiades  together with T. corbulo  , T. insulsus  and T. quammeni  . Although they exhibit unique characters within the genus, such as androconial organs on the wings of the male, the morphology of the male and female genitalia is characteristic of Telemiades  .

Examined material. No data: 1 female, OM 40.663* (DZUP–OM).
