Hapigia repandens, Velo de la Novia, Peru  Adrian Hoskins
Introduction
There are 23 Hapigia species, found variously throughout the neotropical region. All have a similar wing shape, although one species hollandia has scalloped margins to the forewings. The wings vary in colour according to species, and include the pale straw alexiae, the orange-brown plateada, and the dark red gaudens. All Hapigia species have mould-like blotches in the discal cell and apex, and most have a wavy series of basal and post-median dots on the forewings. Several species including obliqua, hollandia and nodicornis also have a series of pale-edged dark oblique lines resembling the veins of a dead crumpled leaf.
Hapigia repandens is found in Venezuela, Guyana, Ecuador and Peru.
