Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


<p> A new species of the genus <i>Etainia</i> Beirne, 1945 of the family Nepticulidae is described from Japan. This species, <i>Etainia parva</i> sp. nov., is closely related to <i>E. peterseni</i> Puplesis in having yellow forewings with a dark fuscous fascia: however it can be distinguished from the latter by the smaller body size, broader forewing fascia, different shapes of the male valvae and female signa in the genitalia. Morphological characters of <i>E. peterseni</i> are redescribed and illustrated.</p>
