Phylogenetic Relationships within Heliodinidae and Systematics of Moths Formerly Assigned to Heliodines Stainton (Lepidoptera: Yponomeutoidea)

Yu-Feng Hsu, Ronald Carter, and William Hayes

Abstract

Heliodinids are tiny, brightly colored dayflying moths. This book proposes phylogenetic relationships among genera of Heliodinidae using parsimony and character compatibility, and describes and illustrates 45 North and Central species (25 newly named) assigned to five genera (two new, two exhumed from synonymy). Larval host plants are recorded for 33 species (14 newly discovered), about 45% of the known fauna; 90% of these are specialists on Caryophyllales, primarily Nyctaginaceae.

Keywords: heliodinids, dayflying moths, phylogenetic relationships, Caryophyllales, Heliodinidae, parsimony, character compatibility, fauna, Nyctaginaceae, larval host plants
