Figs 43–44 View Figs43–48 , 59 View Figs59–66

Assigned BIN: BOLD:AAD6679.

Diagnosis

The yellow blotch on the forewing is the smallest among all species of the constantinaria group. The male genitalia of the holotype are lost, but male genitalia are very similar among all species in the group. COI-barcode: the minimum observed distance to the genetically most similar species ( C.brenemanae   ) is 3.9%. The most reliable identification method appears to be through DNA barcoding.

Type material

Holotype ( Fig. 43 View Figs43–48 ) PERU: ♂, [Junín?] Punamarca , 30 Jan. 1873, Constantin Jelski leg. ( NHM). The genitalia are lost.

Description

As illustrated. The female is unknown.

Distribution
