Abstract

The genus Alloclemensia n.gen. (type-species: Alloclemensia maculata n.sp.), with four species in the Palaearctic region and one species in the Nearctic region, is described and its species are revised. The genus comprises five species: mesospilella (Herrich-Schäffer) [= trimaculella (Herrich-Schäffer)], devotella (Rebel) [= muchei (Soffner), n.syn.] and three new species: americana from North America and unifasciata and maculata from Japan. The monophyly of the genus is demonstrated and the primary dichotomy within the genus is considered to lie between the two western Palaearctic species plus the North American species and the two eastern Palaearctic species. Keys to the species are provided and all species and their genitalia are described and illustrated. Two new combinations and one new synonymy are established and two lectotypes are designated.

Abstract

A preliminary cladistic-phylogenetic analysis of the four Holarctic genera of Adelidae recognized is presented. The monophyly of the superfamily Incurvarioidea is demonstrated on the basis of three possible synapomorphies, and that of the family Adelidae on the basis of three others. The subgenus Cauchas Zeller, 1839 is given generic status, as it is demonstrated to represent the sister-group of Nemophora Illiger & Hoffmannsegg, 1798 and Adela Latreille, 1796. Chalceopla Braun, 1921 is a new synonym of Cauchas Zeller, 1839. A key to the genera, based on males, is given.

Abstract

Notes are given on the identity and synonymy of five species of Lepidoptera described by Linnaeus, twenty-eight by Fabricius and two by Ström. Each species dealt with is treated under the apparent valid combination; for each species reference is given to the original description. Twenty-four new species-group name synonyms are introduced and nine new combinations are established: Nemaxera betulinella (Fabr.), Argyresthia arcella (Fabr.), Depressaria depressana (Fabr.), Chrysoesthia drurella (Fabr.), Brachmia blandella (Fabr.), Acleris laterana (Fabr.), Pseudohermenias abietana (Fabr.), Epinotia abbreviana (Fab.) and Acrobasis repandana (Fabr.). During the work two neotypes, twenty-seven lectotypes and two paralectotypes have been designated and are here cited for the first time.
