Abstract

A new species of Eracon Godman & Salvin, 1894 is described from Central America. Eracon sarahburnsae Grishin, sp. nov. differs from its South American sister species Eracon clinias by wing patterns, male and female genitalia, and DNA barcode. Lectotypes for Spioniades clinias Mabille, 1878 and Arteurotia celendris Hewitson, 1878, and a neotype for Arteurotia epipola Plötz, 1882, are designated to stabilize nomenclature and current usage of these names. The neotype designation makes Arteurotia epipola an objective junior synonym of Arteurotia celendris, and we confirm the status of A. celendris as a junior subjective synonym of Spioniades clinias.
