Abstract

Caloptilia leaf-miner moths (Gracillariidae) of south-east Asia.

Abstract

The southeast Asian species of the genus Caloptilia are reviewed and revised. Twenty-six species are recognized, including 9 new species and the pest species C. theivora and C. soyella. The latter species is frequently confused with C. acrotherma and C. prosticta, similar pests which do not occur in South East Asia. Notes for the separation of these 3 species are given. Four species are synonymized, including C. perseella which is given as junior synonym of C. syrphetias. Keys to adults are provided.
