In this paper the immature stages of Brenthia monolychna Meyrick (Choreutidae: Brenthiinae), as well as their ultrastructure, are described and figured. This is the first description of a New World brenthiine, in addition, notes on life history for four New World species of Brenthia Clemens are provided, including mention of their host plants and parasitoids. Host plant utilization of the genus is discussed. A clarification of the nomenclature of the longest seta on the larval abdominal segment… 

Tables from this paper

A new genus of metalmark moths (Lepidoptera, Choreutidae) with Afrotropical and Australasian distribution
TLDR
The molecular data strongly support the monophyly of Niveas, and the two species are superficially quite dissimilar from each other, but they share features in wing pattern and venation, as well as female genitalia.
Brenthia yangi sp. nov. and its immature stages (Lepidoptera: Choreutidae: Brenthiinae).
TLDR
The preference for the position of escape holes in the larvae of the new species is revealed by statistical analysis and it is found that larvae of III-V instar significantly prefer to set escape holes along main veins.
Polyphyly of Lichen-cryptic Dagger Moths: synonymy of Agriopodes Hampson and description of a new basal acronictine genus, Chloronycta, gen. n. (Lepidoptera, Noctuidae)
TLDR
It is shown that Agriopodes geminata (Smith) represents the northern terminus of clinal variation in wing pattern of A. fallax and is transferred to a new genus, Chloronycta Schmidt & Anweiler, gen. n.
Choreutidae of Madeira : Review of the known species and description of the male of Anthophila threnodes (Walsingham, 1910) (Lepidoptera)
TLDR
The male of A. threnodes is described for the first time the male of Choreutidae recorded from Madeira, and the biology of this Madeiran endemic is discussed.
Choreutidae of Madeira : review of the known species and description of the male oiAnthophila threnodes ( Walsingham , 1910 ) ( Lepidoptera ) Jadranka Rota
TLDR
The male of A. threnodes is described for the first time and described and illustrated, as well as the biology of this Madeiran endemic, are described.
Towards Resolving and Redefining Amphipyrinae (Lepidoptera, Noctuoidea, Noctuidae): a Massively Polyphyletic Taxon
TLDR
The first large-scale molecular phylogenetic study of Amphipyrinae and largest molecular phylogeny of Noctuidae to date is presented; several proposed nomenclatural changes for well supported results; and the identification of areas of noctuid phylogeny where greater taxon sampling and/or genomic-scale data are needed are identified.
Elusive ditrysian phylogeny: an account of combining systematized morphology with molecular data (Lepidoptera)
TLDR
The large morphological dataset provides information on the diversity and distribution of morphological traits in Ditrysia, and can be used in future research on the evolution of these traits, in identification keys and in identification of fossil Lepidoptera.
Exploration of data partitioning in an eight‐gene data set: phylogeny of metalmark moths (Lepidoptera, Choreutidae)
TLDR
Exploration of data partitioning in an eight‐gene data set: phylogeny of metalmark moths (Lepidoptera, Choreutidae) and its role in evolutionary drift is explored.
