Abstract


We describe a new nymphalid butterfly, Euptychia favonius sp. nov., from the western Andes. Adults and genitalia for this new taxon are illustrated and a distribution map is provided. The taxonomy of its sister species, E. meta Weymer, 1911, is discussed, and a lectotype is designated for E. meta.
