DISTRIBUTION: C. America.
TYPE LOCALITY: Panama.
BELIZE RECORDS: Greenhills.
METHOD OF IDENTIFICATION: adult described and illustrated in black
and white by Hampson (1898) page 198, text fig. 94 and illustrated

NOTES: I am not entirely happy with this determination - my specimens
from Belize do not entirely match any currently published description
of a Phoenicoprocta I can find; it may be a new species.
