wingspan : male 30/36, female 40 mm

these two butterflies probably belong to the same subspecies, but with no guarantee,
- the very large female comes from the North (collected at Chantiag, 3200 m, near Riobamba),
- when the diminutive male comes from the South (taken at las Culebrillas, 3400 m).
both look like pale specimens of C. l. andina.

the other specimens (individual variation page) were collected near Ambato.
