Male

 

wingspan : 41 mm


we saw Telemiades sp at San Isidro and rio Miriumi.


Bernard Hermier thinks it could be T. sila,, but our specimens do not look like the T. sila illustrated in the revision of the Genus Telemiades which was just published on the very first days of 2020 ; but the authors of this revision would agree with Bernard Hermier as they consider that T. sila is the only species from the epicalus Group that flies in Ecuador.


nevertheless we see this revision as very focussed on Brasil and Central America, and also Peru, when Colombia and Ecuador are all too rarely mentioned, and we tend to believe that these specimens, collected not only in Sangay NP but also in the NW and the NE of Ecuador, could be Telemiades epicalus indeed.
