Abstract

Lygomusotima Solis & Yen, new genus, and two new species, stria and constricta, are described from Australia and southeastern Asia. L. stria was discovered feeding on Lygodium microphyllum (Cav.) R. Br. (Schizaeaceae) during exploration for biological control agents. Its immatures and biology are described. The new genus is compared with Neomusotima conspurcatalis (Warren), new combination, another species that was discovered feeding on L. microphyllum. N. conspurcatalis is redescribed, and its immatures and biology are described for the first time. Musotima fuscalis Snellen is designated as a new synonym of N. conspurcatalis.
