Oarisma (Copaeodes) favor ( Evans, 1955) , new status

Genomic sequencing of Copaeodes jean jean Evans, 1955 (type locality in Guyana) ( Fig. 9 View FIGURE 9 green) and Copaeodes jean favor Evans, 1955 (type locality in Brazil: Paran√°) ( Fig. 9 View FIGURE 9 magenta), both currently in the genus Oarisma Scudder, 1872 (type species Hesperia powesheik Parker, 1870 ), reveals prominent genetic differentiation between them, e.g., their COI barcodes differ by 4.7% (31 bp). Combined with phenotypic differences mentioned by Evans (1955), like the presence of dark border on wings and the extent of whitening between veins on ventral hindwing, these differences suggest a species status for Oarisma (Copaeodes) favor ( Evans, 1955) , stat. nov.
