South American micropterigid moths: two new genera of the Sabatinca-group (Lepidoptera: Micropterigidae) NIELS P. KRISTENSEN and EBBE SCHMIDT NIELSEN Ent. scand. Kristensen, N. P. & Nielsen, E. S.: South American micropterigid moths: two new genera of the Sabatinca-group (Lepidoptera: Micropterigidae). Ent. scand. 13: 513-529. Lund, Sweden 15 December 1982. ISSN 0013-8711. The basic divisions of the family Micropterigidae are discussed. Hypomartyria micro- pteroides n.gen., n.sp. from Osorno province, Chile, and Squamicornia aequatoriella n.gen., n.sp. from Napo province, Ecuador, are described; they are the first genuine micropterigids recorded from South America. The new taxa are assigned to the Sabatinca- group of genera, and their cladistic relations within the group are tentatively assessed. Hypomartyria appears to be derived from an ancestor closely similar to that of the entire group. Squamicornia exhibits some possible synapomorphies with Old World southern hemisphere taxa. There is no evidence that the two South American genera are each other's closest relatives. N. P. Kristensen, Zool. Mus., Universitetsparken 15, DK-2100 Copenhagen Ø, Denmark. E. S. Nielsen, Zool.
