Arawacus ellida (Hewitson, 1867)   Tigrinota ellida (Hewitson)   : Johnson (1993b) Johnson (1993b) listed a male in AMNH ( Arima Valley, B. Heineman   ). We have not seen this specimen or any others of this distinctive species from Trinidad. Arawacus ellida   occurs primarily in very dry deciduous forest from northern Venezuela (Aroa, where it is very rare) to coastal and interior Brazil and to Argentina, so the high rainfall Arima Valley   seems an unlikely locality compared to the northwest peninsula of Trinidad or the Bocas Islands.
