Discussion of Phylogenetic Relationships
Evidently preferring the broader circumscription of Callaghan and Lamas (2004) over more recent phylogenetic hypotheses, Rodríguez et al. (2011) described this species in the genus Adelotypa. However, they indicated that it is closely-related to Harveyope zerna (Hewitson, 1872). Given the classification employed in these pages, the species is therefore placed in Harveyope stat. nov.
holotype: male. Colombia: Antioquia, El Retiro, 2300-2600 m. 22 June 2002. leg. G. Ramírez.
A paratype male was collected at the same locality. Both are held by the collector.
