Fidicinoides picea ( Walker, 1850) 

Fidicina picea Walker 1850: 81  ( Mexico).

REMARKS.—This is one of the larger species of Fidicinoides  (body length greater than 36 mm, wingspan about 110 mm) in Ecuador with a lack of infuscation in the wings. It is most similar to but larger than both F. pronoe  and F. ptychodiropeda  . It can be distinguished from F. pronoe  further by the more robust body, wide pronotal collar, the male operculum extending to sternite II, the curved proximal margin of the uncal dorsal crest, and the short, triangular lateral branch of the uncus. Fidicinoides picea  can be distinguished from by the posterior margin of the timbal cavity that is smoothly curved on the posterolateral margin but forms a right angle in F. ptychodiropeda  , the wide lateral pronotal collar that lacks the folding characteristic of F. ptychodiropeda  , and the uncus lacks the very large, broad, flat medial extension of the lateral branch of the uncus found in F. ptychodiropeda  . The lack of infuscation in the wings distinguishes from the remaining species of Fidicinoides  in Ecuador.

DISTRIBUTION.—The species has been reported from Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Mexico, Panama, and Venezuela ( Metcalf 1963a; Sanborn 2013; 2018c). The known distribution suggests there are several countries in which the species is awaiting discovery.
