Lepidoptera, Cossidae, Ceuroma, Allocryptobia, fauna, taxonomy, Neotropical


The article describes a new genus of Cossidae (Lepidoptera) from South America, Ceuroma Yakovlev, Naydenov & Penco, gen. n. (Type species Cossus mucoreus Herrich-Schäffer, [1853]). The new genus is mostly close to the Neotropical genus Allocryptobia Viette, 1951; a detailed diagnosis is given. The apomorphic feature of the new genus is the presence of two small clasper or harpe in the middle third on the abdominal edge of the valve. The distribution map is provided and 12 figures.
