Lindt. GoogleMaps  

Diagnosis. Shape and colour of forewings as in P. alticola   sp. nov. and P. alpha   sp. nov., but hindwings with faint discal spots and with a thin green marginal line. Male genitalia similar to those in P. alticola   sp. nov. and P. alpha   sp. nov.

Description. Wing span (22–24 mm) and color of wings as in P. alticola   sp. nov. and P. alpha   sp. nov. described above, but the costal edge of forewing is lined broader, dull yellow and the marginal line is thin, redbrown, the basal part of fringe brown on forewing, fringe otherwise white. There are minute cell-spots on hindwings.

Male genitalia (Fig. 12): slightly differing from those in P. alpha   sp. nov. in the cochlear slenderer, and the dorsal processes of the costal plate closer together. The cochlear is relatively longer than in P. alpha   sp. nov. Female and preimaginal stages unknown.

Genetic data. Nearest neighbour on BOLD Paromphacodes alpha   sp. nov. (KP2 minimum pairwise distance 3.0%) ( Tab. 1).

Derivatio nominis. The name onae   refers to the type locality of the species, Ona near Loja, Ecuador.
