Acalyptris argentosa (Puplesis & Robinson, 2000)

comb. nov.

Acalyptris argentosa (Puplesis & Robinson, 2000)   , comb. nov.

Glaucolepis argentosa   PUPLESIS & ROBINSON, 2000: 57.

The species is known from Central America (Belize). The host plant remains unknown. On the basis of our current re-examination, this species, previously with uncertain and provisional taxonomic position (see Puplesis & Robinson 2000), is transferred from the genus Glaucolepis Braun   to Acalyptris Meyrick   (a description and figures of a re-examination of the male genitalia, wing venation and wing scaling, with formerly unnoticed but hardly visible and very specific androconia, will be presented by Stonis & Remeikis, in prep.).
