Microthyris Lederer, 1863 

This strictly Neotropical genus contains seven species ( Nuss et al., 2016), two more than recorded by Munroe (1995) due to his omission of one (microthyralis Snellen, 1899, described in Crossophora  ) and the transfer of Cyclocena lelex (Cramer, 1777) to Microthyris  by Hayden & Dickel (2014).
