Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
Riculorampha ancyloides Rota & Brown, gen. n., sp. n. from Florida, is described and illustrated. The type series was reared from the fruit of redbay, Persea borbonia (Lauraceae). The new genus is assigned provisionally to the Dichrorampha-group of genera (Grapholitini) on the basis of the following characters: forewing termen with a row of black dots, forewing fringe with a shallow subapical notch, hindwing veins Rs and M1 separate and parallel or subparallel, female frenulum with two bristles, and corpus bursae with a single signum. The last character is shared with Dichrorampha Guenée, Ricula Heinrich, Riculoides Pastrana, and Goditha Heinrich.
