Panacea chalcothea described in PandoraAndrew V. Z. Brower
IntroductionThis is a questionable "species" which Lamas (2004) places as a subspecies of P. regina. A syntype specimen illustrated in Hill et al. (2002) is quite distinctive from specimens of P. regina illustrated there, with rings around the HWV subapical spots and a narrower HWD green band.
