A review of the New World genera Alatuncusia Amsel, 1956 and Dichochroma Forbes, 1944 with new synonymies, new combinations, and description of two new species (Lepidoptera: Crambidae, Glaphyriinae)
The genus Alatuncusia Amsel, 1956 is reviewed, including three species A. canalis (Walker, ) [= Dichogama bergii Möschler, 1890, syn. nov. = Lygropia gilvicostalis Hampson, 1918, syn. nov.)]; A. monochromatalis Becker, sp. nov.; and A. tornimaculalis Becker, sp. nov. The genus Dichochroma Forbes, 1944 is recognized with five species: D. atropos (Solis & Goldstein, 2013), comb. nov.; D. lachesis (Solis & Goldstein, 2013), comb. nov., D. muralis Forbes, 1944 [= S. clotho (Solis & Goldstein, 2013), syn. nov.], D. nyx (Solis &
Goldstein, 2013), comb. nov., D. subductalis (Walker, 1866), comb. nov. [= Lygropia fulvescens Hampson, 1918, syn. nov. = Dichogama fernaldi Möschler, 1890, syn. nov.; = Schacontia themis Solis & Goldstein, 2013, syn. nov. = S. rasa Solis & Goldstein, 2013, syn. nov.].
