Abstract

All rights reserved. The genus Corematura Butler, 1876 currently comprises two species: Corematura chrysogastra (Perty, 1833) and Corematura postflava (Guérin-Menéville, 1844), historically confused in one taxon. Descriptions of the adults of both species and their geographic distributions in Peru are given: C. chrysogastra occurring in the northern Amazon and C. postflava in the southern Amazon. The characters that can differentiate them are mentioned, mainly in the male genitalia. A new combination and synonym are included.
