Title :

A new species of Nephopterix Hübner, 1825 from the Canary Islands, Spain (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae: Phycitinae)

Abstract :

A new species is described from the Canary Islands in the genus Nephopterix Hübner, 1796 (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae: Phycitinae), Nephopterix subangustella sp. nov. The new species is closely related to Nephopterix angustella (Hübner, 1796) but differs by its slightly smaller size, more narrow wings and paler inconspicuous markings on the wing. In the genitalia the sacculus is more bent and the spines in the bursa are much larger. The larvae are found in flowers and seeds of Maytenus canariensis ((Loes.) Kunk. & Sund.). The adult moths, male and female genitalia of the two Nephopterix species are illustrated, along with the type locality. New records of N. angustella from Turkey and mainland Africa are published.
