Thyraylia Walsingham, 1897 

Type species: Conchylis bunteana Robinson, 1869 

Thyraylia  [with its synonym Acornutia Obraztsov, 1944  ; type species Cochylis nana (Haworth, 1811)  ] includes seven Nearctic species (including the one transferred herein) and one Holarctic species. Although Razowski (1960) treated it as a valid genus (as its junior synonym Acornutia  ), he later ( Razowski 1970, 1997, 2011) treated Acornutia  (which he considered a monotypic genus for the Holarctic species nana  ) as a synonym of Cochylis  . However, Thyraylia  has long been recognized as a valid genus in North America (e.g., Powell 1983, Pogue 1986, Brown 2005, Metzler & Brown 2014), and it currently includes the following species: bana ( Kearfott, 1907), bunteana (Robinson, 1869)  , discana ( Kearfott, 1907), gunniana ( Busck, 1907), hollandana ( Kearfott, 1907), nana  , and voxcana ( Kearfott, 1907) ( Metzler & Brown 2014). Species of Thyraylia  are characterized by an elongate, somewhat upcurved, distally attenuate valva, a sacculus with a long, free distal tip near the middle of the venter of the valva, and a slender, curved, apically pointed phallus that lacks cornuti (e.g., Razowski 1997: figs. 87‒91). Phalonia wiscana Kearfott  is herein transferred to Thyraylia  .
