About this book

The authors examine relationships within the "Chrysoxena" group of the tortricid tribe Euliini. They define 54 species among six genera: "Chrysoxena" Meyrick; "Vulpoxena" Brown, new genus; "Thoridia" Brown, new genus; "Dorithia" Powell; "Cuproxena" Powell and Brown, new genus; and "Bidorpitia" Brown, new genus. Using cladistic methods, the authors develop a phylogenetic hypothesis for the genera and species groups of "Dorithia" and "Cuproxena." A systematic treatment of the included species provides appropriate generic assignment for several previously misplaced species and describes many taxa as new.
