[ Larentiinae  2]

[172–176] [Perizomini]: Attribution to tribe according to the Palearctic concept ( Mironov 2003). For doubts about generic assignment see under P. pastoralis  . Probably the species is related to Ennada  and certain “ Nebula  ” species e.g., N. ceres  ( Larentiini  ?, see below) and does not belong to Perizomini. Multigene analysis ( COI, EF 1 alpha, 28 S) shows these three branches ( Perizoma pastoralis  , Ennada  and Nebula ceres  -group) united.

[172–176] Perizoma pastoralis ( Butler, 1882) 

[177–179] Ennada pellicata ( Felder & Rogenhofer, 1875)  : The position in the tribe Larentiini  is well supported by habitus and genitalia structure. See remarks to [172–176]. The status of both forms with and without the projection of medial area towards the termen as infrasubspecific, infrapopulational forms is confirmed by COI data.

[180–191] “ Nebula  ” sp. 1 and “ Nebula  ceres  ( Butler, 1882): See remarks to [172–176].

[198–210] Eupithecia  sp. 4: Difficult group with variable habitus, probably including Eupithecia spurcata (Warren, 1904)  . COI data revealing a heterogenous pattern of different haplotypes, mean “intra”specific variation 1.7 %, maximum pairwise distance 3.4 %. Probably corresponding to several different species.

[217–219] Genus AH 6 sp. 1: Possibly an eupitheciine genus, as tentatively suggested by position in the NJ tree. In the multigene analysis ( COI, EF 1 alpha, 28 S) however rather grouping with Perizoma pastoralis  than with Eupitheciini  .

[220–222] “ Nebula  ” diana ( Butler, 1882) and “ Nebula  ” adela ( Butler, 1893): For polyphyly of the genus ” Nebula  ” and doubtful generic combination(s) see remarks [41–46; 49–58; 180–191; 220–222].

[223; 226–231]: see remarks to genus Hoplosauris  [30–33; 223; 226–231]

[232] Triptiloides  sp. 1 ( cf. esmeralda  ): Molecular analysis ( COI) suggesting species diversity from T. esmeralda  [233–235]: minimum pairwise distance: 2.3 % (mean intraspecific variation of the latter 0.2 %).

[236–240] Orthonama plemyrata ( Felder & Rogenhofer, 1875)  : In Scoble (1999) as synonym of Orthonama obstipata ( Fabricius, 1794)  . Separated from Old world sister species in Hausmann & Hebert (2008).

[241–242] Rheumaptera  sp. 1 (cf. " Larentia  " irma  ): see remarks to genus Rheumaptera  [59–64; 241–242]. Tribal and generic relationships awaiting revision. Molecular analysis ( COI) not revealing close relationship to Palaearctic species of the genus Rheumaptera  .

[#] Hoplosauris valeria Butler, 1893  : specimen not yet barcoded; unnamed genus according to Scoble (1999), but assignment to Hoplosauris  probable.
