Scea brykiJames S. Miller and Andrew V. Z. Brower
IntroductionScea bryki is a rare species from the Peruvian Andes, known from only two female specimens (Miller, 2009).
CharacteristicsScea bryki is superficially very similar to S. erasa in that both lack the black scaling over the veins in the basal orange forewing patch, but they differ in features of the female genitalia (males of S. bryki are unknown). The two are likely covergent in wing pattern (along with, e. g., the arctiid Euryptidia basivitta - see below).
