A new species of Dalla from Chiapas, Mexico (Lepidoptera, Hesperiidae, Heteropterinae).

A. D. Warren, R. G. de la Maza E.


A new species of Dalla is described from montane cloud forest habitats in southern Chiapas, Mexico. Based on male genitalia and characters of the wings and body, the new species appears to be closest to Dalla steinhauseri, a taxon known from montane cloud forest in eastern Oaxaca, Mexico, although it has been confused with Dalla freemani in the literature.
