Nicolaea socia (Hewitson, 1868)  

Calycopis socia (Hewitson)   : Kaye (1940, no. 227a)

Kaye (1940) records a specimen in coll. E. Bourke, OMNH. M.J.W. Cock has reviewed the Bourke collection, and identified all Lycaenidae   . There were no specimens of N. socia   , but six specimens of Lycaenidae   were removed some time last century, apparently on loan and not returned. Some key specimens of moths referred to by Kaye (1925) are also missing from the collection, and it may have been Kaye himself who borrowed them. We know of no other Trinidad records of this species, which is not expected to occur, as it is endemic to the Brazilian cerrado as far as we know.

Barcant (1970, no. 313) misapplies this name to Kolana ergina   .
