Atrytonopsis zweifeli is a male of A. frappenda (Lepidoptera, Hesperiidae, Hesperiinae, Hesperiini).

A. D. Warren, N. V. Grishin


Until recently, the skipper butterfly Atrytonopsis zweifeli has been known from males, and the similar A. frappenda has been known from females. Discovery and analysis of a male A. frappenda from its type locality (Distrito Federal, Mexico) and an A. frappenda–like female from near the type locality of A. zweifeli, establishes Atrytonopsis zweifeli H. Freeman, 1969 as a new junior subjective synonym of A. frappenda (Dyar, 1920).
