A method for identifying the members of the endemic genus Wiseana Viette from New Zealand is described. Seven species have been described in the genus: W. cervinata (Walker), W. copularis (Meyrick), W. fuliginea (Butler), W. jocosa (Meyrick), W. mimica (Philpott), W. signata (Walker) and W. umbraculata (Guenée). No morphological characters have been identified to distinguish between the larvae of each species and adult females exhibit high levels of intra and interspecific morphological… CONTINUE READING
