<i>Eutromula pariana</i> (Clerck) (Lepidoptera: Choreutidae), the correct name of the apple-and-thorn skeletonizer
Keywords:<i>Eutromula pariana</i>, Lepidoptera, Choreutidae, apple-and-thorn skeletonizer
AbstractNomenclatural problems are noted which make <i>Eutromula pariana</i> (Clerck) the correct name of the apple-and-thorn skeletonizer. Previously used generic names are distinct genera (<i>Anthophila</i> Haworth and <i>Hemerophila</i> Hübner, ), synonyms (<i>Simaethis</i> Leach), or unavailable names (<i>"Hemerophila"</i> Hübner, 1806). The species is now placed in the family Choreutidae (Sesioidea) which has been separated from Glyphipterigidae (Copromorphoidea).
