Carohamilia Ophelia Dyar, 1940: 1269  .

Material examined: Type material. Holotype ♂: Guatemala: Cayuga, March, Schaus and Barnes coll., TypeNo. 23430 U.S.N.M., USNMENT 01198176 ( USNM) ( Figs. 3View FIGURES 1−10, 14View FIGURES 11−16). 

Literature records (cited by Schoorl (1990)): Mexico: 2 ♂, Yucatan, Chichen Itza ( CMNH)  ; 2 ♂, near Concordia, Sinoloa ( CMNH)  ; 1 ♂, Concordia , Sinaloa ( NHMA)  . The specimens from Mexico were not studied morphologically, so their affiliation to C. ophelia  is not confirmed  .

Diagnosis. The species differs from the other representatives of the genus by the following features:

- the fore wing is pale, with a black area basally, black stroke at the costal edge in the postdiscal area and a black discal spot;

- the saccular margin of the valve is straight.

Distribution. Guatemala. The distribution of the species in Mexico is not confirmed. To clarify the species attribution of the specimens from Mexico, given by Schoorl (1990), we need to study the genital morphology of these specimens.
