Abstract: A new species of Actinote Hubner, A. kennethi Freitas, Willmott and Hall (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae: Heliconiinae), is described from Cloud forest habitats in eastern Ecuador. Molecular sequence data and morphological characters both indicate that the new taxon is closely related to Actinote g. genitrix d'Almeida, 1922, from southeastern Brazil, and the Venezuelan Actinote genitrix costae Neild, 2008. Based on the Substantial geographic isolation of these taxa, observed morphological differences and mtDNA sequence divergence, we argue for the treatment of the new Ecuadorian Actinote taxon as a distinct species.
