Abstract

Five Neotropical tortricine species which currently lack meaningful generic assignment (i.e., “Archipini unplaced”) are assigned to genera. The following new combinations and synonymies are proposed: Argyrotaenia telemacanaRazowski and Becker, 2010, new synonymy, as a junior synonym of Argyrotaenia tristriata (Meyrick, 1931); Teras jamaicanaWalker, 1863, new synonymy, as a junior synonym of Pandemis heparana ([Denis and Schiffermüller], 1775); Raisapoana parana (Busck, 1911), new combination; Archipimima mansueta (Meyrick, 1924), new combination; Sisurcana biforata (Meyrick, 1930) new combination, including Sisurcana validaRazowski and Becker, 2011, new synonymy; Sisurcana recurvana (Zeller, 1866), new combination; and Sisurcana clivigera (Meyrick, 1932), new combination. In addition, Farragona Austin and Dombroskie, new genus is proposed to accommodate two species: Tortrix cratistaWalsingham, 1914 and Tortrix cremnobatesWalsingham, 1914 (the latter currently placed in Clepsis Guenée); the former of which has a lectotype and paralectotype designated. This results in F. cratista (Walsingham, 1914), new combination and F. cremnobates (Walsingham, 1914), new combination.
