Euidelloides montana Muir, 1926: 17 - Ecuador (Mt. Tunguragua, 10,000 feet)
Limited. This is a rare species known only from the 1 male and 5 females originally collected and described (to the best of my knowledge).
Collected from the bamboo Chusquea sp. (Poaceae)
Host from Muir, 1926; same reported in Wilson et al. (1994). Plant names from USDA PLANTS database.
I have seen one of the female paratypes (in the CASC collection, in San Francisco), but I am otherwise unfamiliar; I have requested specimens from BPBM on loan, and will photograph when available.
