Zaretis itys is a highly variable species that flies from Mexico to the Guyanas and to Paraguay (Comstock 1961).

seen near Puyo, Macas and Sucúa and at rio Pastaza ; in Sangay NP Zaretis itys is scarce when Z. isidora is common.

recent barcodes uncovered eight new species hidden under Z. isidora and Z. itys, so, at least part of our identifications must be wrong.
