Platphalonia Razowski, 2011 (Tortricidae, Tortricinae, Euliini, Cochylina) was proposed for Saphenista mystica Razowski & Becker, 1983 (type species) and several species previously assigned to Platphalonidia Razowski, 1985. However, with the exception of the type species, none of the other purported congeners have been listed. We formally transfer 16 species to Platphalonia, resulting in the following new combinations: P. albertae (Razowski, 1997), P. assector (Razowski, 1967), P. californica (Razowski, 1986), P. campicolana (Walsingham, 1879), P. dangi (Razowski, 1997), P. decrepita (Razowski & Becker, 2002), P. dubia (Razowski & Becker, 1983). P. fusifera (Meyrick, 1912), P. galbanea (Meyrick, 1917), P. lavana (Busck, 1907), Platphalonidia luxata (Razowski & Becker, 1986), P. mendora (Clarke, 1968), P. ochraceana (Razowski, 1967), P. paranae (Razowski & Becker, 1983), P. plicana (Walsingham, 1884), and P. sublimis (Meyrick, 1917). We describe Platphalonia magdalenae Metzler & Albu, new species, from a series of specimens that were discovered nectaring on Centromedia (=Hemizonia) pungens (Hook. & Arn.) Greene ssp. pungens (Asteraceae) during the day-time on 2 May 2011 in Tulare County, in the Central Valley of California. Adults and male and female genitalia of P. magdalenae are illustrated.
