Local distribution: Pacific slope from lowlands to 1500 m.
Species range: Guatemala to Brazil
Comments: I have observed oviposition on Passiflora at 1350 m in Monteverde, but the normal breeding habitat in our area is below 700 m where Erblichia occurs. This species is sometimes a common migrant through Monteverde in November-December.
