Key to Florida species of Craspedolepta  

1. Forewing membrane bearing brown, often very faint dots ( Fig. 48 View Figures 44–55 ). Terminalia ( Fig. 72–75, 79, 80 View Figures 72–81 )............................................ C. euthamiae Burckhardt and Halbert   , spec. nov.

— Forewing membrane unicolor whitish or yellowish, lacking brown dots. Terminalia different ( Fig. 56–71 View Figures 56–65 View Figures 66–71 , 82–85).............................................................................. 2

2(1). Rear margin of male paramere with a bulge in the middle ( Fig. 82, 83 View Figures 82–85 ); tubercular sculpture on the inner paramere face extending almost to basal third of paramere ( Fig. 83 View Figures 82–85 : arrow). Membranous sack on dorsum of distal segment of aedeagus almost reaching base ( Fig. 84 View Figures 82–85 : arrow). Female subgenital plate pointed apically ( Fig. 85 View Figures 82–85 )............................................. C. flavida (Caldwell)  

— Rear margin of male paramere with a bulge in apical third; tubercular sculpture on the inner paramere face extending to about the middle of paramere or less ( Fig. 56–61 View Figures 56–65 : arrows). Membranous sack on dorsum of distal segment of aedeagus reaching the middle ( Fig. 62–65 View Figures 56–65 : longer arrows). Female subgenital plate indented apically ( Fig. 66, 68, 69, 71 View Figures 66–71 )........................................ 3

3(2). Distal segment of aedeagus with apical margin hardly convex ( Fig. 62 View Figures 56–65 : short arrow). Female proctiger, in profile, relatively straight dorsally with short distal process that is hardly inflated apically ( Fig. 66 View Figures 66–71 ). Dorsal and ventral valvulae distinctly curved, ventral valvulae weakly serrate apically ( Fig. 67 View Figures 66–71 )........................................................................ C. bifida (Caldwell)  

— Distal segment of aedeagus with apical margin distinctly concave ( Fig. 63–65 View Figures 56–65 : short arrow). Female proctiger, in profile, weakly undulated dorsally with long, apically slightly inflated distal process ( Fig. 69 View Figures 66–71 ). Dorsal and ventral valvulae weakly curved, lacking ventral serration ( Fig. 70 View Figures 66–71 )............................................................................ C. furcata (Caldwell)
