STATUS: Widely distributed in New Guinea. Paectes psaliphora is somewhat similar to P. kebeae. The subbasal streak is in kebeae broadly connected to the median curved line, in P. psaliphora both lines are separated. Paectes cyanodes and P. cristatrix have much thinner lines and the curved median line is somewhat irregular.
