Arthropoda 10(2): 13-25



A new species belonging to the genus Dirphia HOBNER, 1819 ("1816") and its preimaginal instars from Venezuela is described and figured in color. Dirphia barinasensis n. sp. is only reported from Barinas city and Barinitas village (Barinas province of Venezuela) in the north of the Llanos in altitudes between 180 m - 420 m thus far. Two clearly distinguishable morphs are known. The new species will be compared with Dirphia lichyi LEMAIRE, 1971 and Dirphia tarquinia (CRAMER, 1775), two nearly related species of Dirphia in Venezuela. The description is based on good characters in outer morphology, genitalia-morphology and biological information; followed by a short discussion dealing with the taxonomical status of the species and the tarquinia-group. No further taxonomical or nomenclatural changes and acts are made.
