Description. Imago (Fig. 59). Labial palpus with third segment shorter than second. Clypeus with ventral margin broadly truncate. Antenna simple in female, somewhat thickened in male, usually longer than half forewing length, some species half forewing length. Ocellus absent. Posterior area of sitophore with four campaniform sensilla in symmetrical trapezoid pattern with anterior pair closer together than posterior pair; anterior area with two, four, or six campaniform sensilla. Forewing (length/width ratio 5.1) with tufts of raised scales, with pterostigma; R 5 and M 1 stalked, M 2 and M 3 separate, CuA 1 and CuA 2 present; median fascia transverse or directed from base of costa toward posterior margin. Hindwing (length/width ratio 5.6) with R 5 and M 1 connate, M 2 and M 3 connate, M 3 and CuA 1 separate, male with yellow hair pencil at base of anal area ( Fig. 3 View FIGURES 1 – 6 ). Male abdominal sternum VIII broad, emarginate mesially ( Fig. 22 View FIGURES 19 – 24 ); tergum VIII well developed.

Male genitalia ( Fig. 38 View FIGURES 34 – 39 ): uncus small, subequal in length with gnathos; gnathos shorter than that in species of Agnippe   , hook shaped; valva and vinculum complex strongly asymmetrical; costal part of valva with bulbous base, distal part slender; saccular part of valva absent; tegumen basal width/length ratio 0.6; saccus not developed; phallic fulcrum well developed, without cornuti.

Female genitalia: apophyses posteriores about 2 x length of apophyses anteriores; apophyses anteriores and abdominal segment VIII subequal in length; antrum not developed; ductus bursae membranous, shorter than length of corpus bursae, with sclerotized colliculum; signum spiny, wedge shaped.

Larva. Length approximately 5–9 mm; pinacula small, fuscous; crochets on abdominal prolegs in a complete biordinal circle, weaker laterally; anal crochets in a complete biordinal series or broken line; anal fork present ( Freeman 1967; Keifer 1932, 1933, 1936; McLeod 1966; Opler 1974; Peterson 1977; Stevens et al. 1978).

Pupa. Maxillary palpi separated from genae; labrum obtusely angled; frons lacking a tubercle; frontoclypeal suture concave in central part; prothoracic legs adjacent to oculi; apices of metathoracic legs large, their caudal part wider than antenna; abdominal segment VII not margined by setae caudally ( Keifer 1932, 1936; Patoèka and Turcáni 2005).

Diagnosis. Coleotechnites   species superficially resemble those of Recurvaria   and Exoteleia   . Coleotechnites   can be easily differentiated from them by the bilaterally asymmetrical male genitalia.

( Bland 2002; Braun 1921; Browne 1968; Craighead 1950; Emmet 1988; Forbes 1923; Freeman 1957, 1960, 1962, 1963, 1965, 1967; Godfrey et al. 1987; Hellrigl 1996; Hodges 1985; Hodges and Stevens 1978; Ives and Wong 1988; Keifer 1927, 1932, 1933, 1936; Opler 1974; Prentice 1966; Robinson et al. 2002; Schaffner 1959; Wagner et al. 1995; Zhang 1994).

Diversity and distribution. This genus includes 49 species throughout United States and Canada; one species, C. piceaella   , is introduced to Europe ( Braun 1921; Freeman 1957, 1960, 1967; Hodges 1985; Hodges and Stevens 1978; Huemer and Karsholt 1999).

Notes. Hapalosaris   was proposed by Meyrick (1917) to include a single species, Hapalosaris petulans   , from Peru. Hapalosaris   is synonymized here with Coleotechnites   based on the similarity of wing venation and structures of male genitalia.
