Proutiella vittula described in EphialtiasJames S. Miller and Andrew V. Z. Brower
This rare species is endemic to the Atlantic coastal forest of Brazil. Many specimens identified as "Josia vittula" in collections are in fact representatives of the superficially similar and much more common Lyces angulosa. P. vittula may be involved in a Müllerian mimicry complex with various Lyces spp.
