Abstract

The genus Calyptra [=Calpe] is revised with comments on and illustrations of the male genitalia and habitus of all species and subspecies, together with a key to the species and tables summarizing pertinent characters. Culyptra is redescribed and compared to closely related genera (Africalpe, Oraesia, Percalpe, Plusiodonta). 17 species are recognized (albivirgata, bicolor, eustrigata, fasciata [=labilis], fletcheri, gruesa, hokkaida [=hoenei], imperialis, lata [=aureola], minuticornis, nyei. ophideroides, orthograpta [=striata], parva, pseudobicolor, thalictri [=sodalis], 5 synonymies are newly established or confirmed. Crossing experiments proved novaepommeraniae a subspecies of minutiornis; subspecies pallida is identical to thalictri form centralitalica, while its aberration intensiva is an infrasubspecific name. The species aeneofusa, albescens, argyrolampra, argyrosema, cerne. glaucocheila. igneceps, wintgensi are transferred to Oraesia, nubifera to Africalpe, icterica to Arcyophora, sittaca to Hemiceratoides and dubiosa to Odontestis; emarginata, excavata, rectistria are confirmed to belong to Oraesia and canadensis to Percalpe.
