status

 

Genus Encolapta Meyrick, 1913  

Type species: Encolapta metorcha Meyrick, 1913   .

= Homoshelas Meyrick, 1935  

= Chelophoba Meyrick, 1935  

= Homochelas Clarke, 1969

The genus Encolapta Meyrick, 1913   is superficially similar to Hypatima Hübner [1825]   , but it can be separated by the abdominal tergite VIII with a simple sclerotized, banded or semi-elliptical plate and the valvella without apical thorn in male. The genus comprises 17 species, mostly distributed in Asia ( Yang & Li 2016). In Korea, three species of the genus Encolapta   have been known: E. catarina ( Ponomarenko, 1994)   , E. tegulifera ( Meyrick, 1932)   . and T. subtegulifera ( Ponomarenko, 1994)   .
