Leucotrichia topora ( Oláh & Flint 2012)   new combination

Acostatrichia topora Oláh & Flint 2012: 156   , figs. 35–37, male; type locality: Panama: Barro Colorado Island, Snyder-Molino trail, marker 3; type depository: NMNH.

Material examined: HOLOTYPE male: Panama, Barro Colorado Island , Snyder-Molino trail, marker 3, light trap, 2–8.XII.1987, leg. H. Wolda ( NMNH).  

Remarks. Based on male genitalia, this species seems to belong to an intriguing group of species, now assigned to Leucotrichia   , including L. zopilote ( Holzenthal & Harris 1999)   and L. falsa ( Santos, Takiya & Nessimian 2013)   . Those species are very distinctive from any other Leucotrichia   species, but phylogenetic analyses with morphological and molecular data strongly support this placement ( Santos et al. 2016). Due to the similarities in male genitalia of Acostatrichia topora   and these two Leucotrichia   species, especially the processes of segments VIII and IX, this species is formally transferred to Leucotrichia   .
