Microloxia Warren, 1893
status

 

Microloxia Warren, 1893 

Microloxia aistleitneri  Hausmann, 2009 ("sp. nov.")

Microloxia chlorissoides  (Prout, 1912) ("comb. nov.")

Microloxia herbaria  ( Hübner, 1813)

Microloxia herbaria virideciliata  (Bubacek, 1926) ("syn. nov.", followed by "stat. rev.")

Notes

One new species was described ( Hausmann 2009).

After synonymising Aoshakuna  and Nipponogelasma  , Beljaev (2007) transferred Nipponogelasma chlorissoides  (Prout, 1913) to Microloxia  .

Leraut (2009) synonymised Microloxia herbaria virideciliata  with M. h. herbaria  ( Hübner, 1813). Müller et al. (2019) cited molecular and morphological evidence to justify elevating M. h. virideciliata  back to subspecies.
