we saw Methona curvifascia at rio Pastaza. it is very difficult to separate Methona curvifascia from Methona confusa psamathe.

but you can differentiate these two species by observing the HW costa ventrally: M. confusa psamathe either has a silvery marking, or sometimes nothing, while M. curvifascia always shows two silvery lines (see bottom pictures).
