Abstract. The monotypic mimallonine genus Tostallo St Laurent and C. Mielke is reviewed in order to provide a more comprehensive understanding of the distribution of T. albescens (Jones). Biological information, including larval case structure and phenological data, are provided for this enigmatic species, along with the first photograph of a living example of T. albescens. Mimallodes gen. n., is described for the single species M. anaemicus sp. n., based on a single male collected in Espírito…

Hexapoda Yearbook (Arthropoda: Mandibulata: Pancrustacea) Brazil 2020: the first annual production survey of new Brazilian species

There are inequalities in the production of described species regarding the regions of Brazil, with Southeast and South leading and the top 10 institutions regarding productions of new species have four in the Southeast, two at South and with one at North Region being the outlier of this pattern.



Three new genera of Neotropical Mimallonidae (Lepidoptera, Mimallonoidea, Mimallonidae) with descriptions of three new species

Three new genera of Mimallonidae are described, one of which is erected to contain “Perophora” albescens Jones, 1912, which was previously placed in the preoccupied genus Perophora Harris, 1841 and was never formally moved to a valid genus.

Reclassification of the Sack-bearer Moths (Lepidoptera, Mimallonoidea, Mimallonidae)

Based on phylogenetic results, the classification of Mimallonidae is revised, which now includes 291 species in 41 genera, and apomorphies for each genus and a morphological key to genera are provided.

Museum specimens provide phylogenomic data to resolve relationships of sack‐bearer moths (Lepidoptera, Mimallonoidea, Mimallonidae)

This study is the first to implement the LEP1 probe set on a comprehensive taxonomic dataset that includes many museum specimens, and the results demonstrate that museum specimens can be used in anchored hybrid enrichment studies, and produce a robust phylogeny that will serve as a foundation for future studies on mimallonid evolution.

A new target capture phylogeny elucidates the systematics and evolution of wing coupling in sack‐bearer moths

The frenulum has historically been used as an important character for intrafamilial classification in Mimallonidae, but the results conclusively show that this character system is more variable than previously thought.
