Cestromoecha Karsch, 1893


Cestromoecha Karsch, 1893 

Before establishing Cestromoecha, Karsch  had described the type species (and a second species) under Poreuomena  . Cestromoecha  seems to differ from Poreuomena  mainly and only in the tip of the male abdomen.

Therefore it should be included in Poreuomenini  , as already suggested by Griffini (1908 b: 86) who listed it under Poreuomenae.
