Lamproxynella Hering  

The closely related genera Dyseuaresta Hendel   , Lamproxynella Hering   , and Pseudoedaspis Hendel   need revision and the classification of their species should be reconsidered based on a phylogenetic analysis. At least based on their wing patterns, D. fuscoapicalis Hering, 1942   , and Acinia impluviata Blanchard, 1852   ( Fig. 47), appear to be better placed in Lamproxynella   , which have reticulate or banded patterns, than in Dyseuaresta   , which usually have radiate to stellate patterns. They are hereby transferred from Dyseuaresta   to Lamproxynella   . The only known host plant of L. impluviata   is a species of Senecio   ( Asteraceae   : Senecioneae) ( Frías 1992), a genus that is attacked by at least two other species of Lamproxynella   , whereas most known hosts for Dyseuaresta species   are in the tribe Heliantheae   ( Prado et al. 2002; Norrbom, unpubl. data).
