Mimcochylis Razowski, 1985 

Type species: Mimcochylis planola Razowski, 1985  (= Conchylis fulvotinctana Walsingham, 1884  , new combination, new synonymy).

Mimcochylis Razowski, 1985 b: 61  ; Powell et al. 1995: 142; Brown 2005: 424.

Mimcochylis  was described by Razowski (1985) along with four new species from northwestern Mexico (i.e., Baja California, Sinaloa, and Durango), with each species represented only by the holotype – one by a male and three by females. Razowski (1985) listed the following autapomorphies for the genus: the top of the tegumen with three small prominences; a median prominence on the dorsal surface of the tegumen subapically; and accessory bursa arising ventrally from the base of the ductus bursae. He also noted the following features: tegumen broad, mem- branous laterally except for base and apical one-third; vinculum arms separate distally; transtilla complete with a simple median process; juxta short, expanded laterally; valva short, broad, with differentiated costal portion; caulis anterior; ovipositor elongate, semi-telescopic; apophyses long; ductus seminalis from membranous corpus bursae, subdorsally; and anterior margin of sterigma concave or deeply incised mesially. The single known male, that of M. planola  , has a distinctive, long, slender, free, upturned costal of the valva, and a long, slender, distally attenuate phallus lacking cornuti; and these features distinguish it from all other Cochylina.

Distribution and biology. Mimcochylis  is known from southern Arizona (Santa Rita and Huachuca mountains), U.S.A., and Baja California, Sinaloa, and Durango, Mexico.
