Chris J. Müller, John W. Tennent


Altiapa blancae n. sp. is described from the Upper Sepik and Eastern Highlands Province, Papua New Guinea. Both sexes and the male genitalia are figured and compared with Altiapa pandora (Joicey & Talbot, 1916), with which the new species has previously been confused, and A. decolor (Rothschild & Jordan, 1905). Altiapa pedaloidina (Joicey, Noakes & Talbot, 1916) rev. stat. is reinstated as a distinct species.
