Abstract

Methona confusa has been recorded across its geographic range from low elevations up to around 2,000 m, being rare above 1,500 m. We report herein a new elevational record of M. confusa above 3,500 m, the highest ever reported for ithomiines, from upper montane area of Megantoni National Sanctuary and Manu National Park, located on the eastern slopes of the Andes of southern Peru.
