Abstract

Munroe (1995) included four genera and nine species from the Western Hemisphere in Cybalomiinae. The species were morphologically compared with Cybalomia pentadalis Lederer, the type species of Cybalomia, and all belong to other subfamilies. Accordingly, the following new and revised combinations and/or subfamilial assignments are proposed: Elusia Schaus is returned to Scopariinae; Cybalomia extorris Warren is transferred to Aethiophysa Munroe, Dichochroma Forbes and Schacontia Dyar are transferred to Glaphyriinae; and Cybalomia lojanalis (Dognin) is transferred to Diptychophora Zeller in Crambinae. A lectotype is designated for Platytes lojanalis Dognin. The adults and genitalia are figured for the first time.
