Acrolepiidae; Douglasiidae; Epermeniidae; new species; Tineidae; type material


The study of some of the so called "Microlepidoptera" families, the Tineidae, Epermeniidae, Acrolepiidae and Douglasiidae, at the collection of the ZFMK, brought some species of taxonomical and faunistical interest to light. Two species are described as new: Reisserita zouhari sp. n. (Tineidae), and Epermenia (Epermenia) dalianicola sp. n. (Epermeniidae). In addition, the type-material of the four families, stored in the collection of the ZFMK, is listed and commented.
