The Ethmia terminella group from the Canary Islands (Spain) and Morocco (Lepidoptera: Depressariidae, Ethmiinae)
Keywords:Lepidoptera, Depressariidae, Ethmiinae, Ethmia, new species, Canary Islands, Spain, Morocco
The Ethmia terminella group is reviewed. Three species and one subspecies are recognized: E. terminella terminella Fletcher, 1938, E. terminella micropunctella Amsel, 1955, E. bennyi Falck & Karsholt, sp. n. (Spain: Gran Canaria) and E. pseudoterminella Falck & Karsholt, sp. n. (Spain: Fuerteventura, Morocco). Adults and genitalia of these four taxa are illustrated. The taxonomic results are supported by the DNA barcodes from sequencing of the 658 bp fragment of the mitochondrial COI gene.
