The Brazilian species of the genus Eustema Schaus, 1901, with description of a new genus and species (Lepidoptera: Notodontidae, Heterocampinae)
Three species of Eustema Schaus, 1901 are recorded for Brazil: E. argentata Becker, sp. n., E. dara (Druce, 1894) and E. opaca Schaus, 1921; E. rapana Jones, 1908, originally assigned to the genus, is not congeneric with the other species; a new genus is proposed, Rapanodonta Becker, gen. n., to include it. Eustema sericea Schaus, 1910, is a new synonymy of E. dara (Druce, 1894). The larvae of E. dara and E. opaca feed on the leaves of Roupala montana and Grevillea sp. (Proteaceae).
