A remarkable new butterfly species from western Amazonia (Lepidoptera, Nymphalidae, Satyrinae)Huertas, B; Lamas, G; Fagua, G; Mallet, J; Nakahara, S; Willmott, K (ProAves Foundation, 2016-10-27)A distinctive new species of butterfly in the subtribe Euptychiina (Nymphalidae: Satyrinae), which is widespread throughout the upper Amazon in Colombia, Ecuador and Peru, is here described. The species is provisionally placed in the genus Magneuptychia Forster, 1964, although this is likely to change as the higher level taxonomy of Euptychiina is resolved and the genus is reviewed in detail.
