Brangas caranus (Stoll, 1780)  

See comments under B. getus   in main list.

Brangas neora (Hewitson, 1867)  

Atlides neora (Hewitson)   : Kaye (1940, no. 245b), Barcant (1970, no. 336)

Kaye (1940) records this species from Trinidad based on a specimen collected at Morne Diable, Feb 1922 by E.E. Fabien. Barcant (1970) did not seem to know this species, as there are none in his collection. We have not located Fabien’s specimen, or any other specimens of this species from Trinidad. It is possible that it was misidentified, e.g. for the male or female of B. dydimaon   . Nevertheless, its continental distribution suggests it could well occur in Trinidad.

Annamaria ganimedes (Cramer, 1775)  

Theritas nobilis (Herrich-Schäffer)   : Kaye (1904, no. 172), Kaye (1921, no. 252) [synonym]

This species was included as Lamasina ganimedes   in Robbins (2004), but the present generic name follows ICZN (2015). Kaye (1904, 1921) records a specimen from Maraval Valley, but this species was not listed by Barcant (1970). We have not located Kaye’s specimen in BMNH, nor could it be located in MGCL (C.V. Covell Jr, pers. comm. 2016). We have seen no Trinidad specimens.
