Brief Summary

Argyrophorus argenteus is the spectacular "silver satyr" of central Chile, the males of which possess metallic scales on their dorsal surface that make them flash like polished metal. They are extremely difficult to capture, flying rapidly and diving into clumps of bunch grass (the likely larval hostplant). The other three undescribed species are from remote Andean regions.
