Subgenus Stigmatophora Staudinger, 1881 

Stigmatophora Staudinger, 1881  , Stettiner entomologische Zeitung 42: 399. Type speCies: Setina micans Bremer & Grey, 1853  , by monotypy.

Diagnosis. Small or medium-sized moths with different wing coloration and pattern. Male antennae are fasciculate, female antennae are filiform. In the male genitalia ( Figs. 11–12View FIGURES 9–11View FIGURES 12–13), like in other Endrosina  Börner, 1920 genera, the valve with well developed thorn-like harpe medio-subbasally; the costa is weakly sclerotized, without medial and distal processes; the sacculus with a well developed distal process; the vesica consists of one dorsal subbasal membranous diverticulum and large sack-like distal section with fields of spine- or tooth-like scobination and/or clusters of numerous small but robust cornuti. The female genitalia ( Figs. 14–15View FIGURES 14–16) are characterized by the very long, well sclerotized and dorso-ventrally flattened ductus bursae, the small, elliptical corpus bursae with a strong spine-like scobination, and the very long and narrow appendix bursae directed posteriorly. Genital differences from Pseudomiltochrista are described in the diagnosis of the latter.
