The Palaearctic genus Acompsia is revised and two subgenera are considered: Acompsia Hübner, 1825 and Telephila Meyrick, 1923. Altogether 17 species are dealt with in detail and genitalia and adults are figured. 7 new species are described: Acompsia (A.) pyrenaella sp. n. (Spain: Pyrenees), A. (A.) ponomarenkoae sp. n. (Albania, Greece), A. (A.) schepleri sp. n. (Turkey), A. (A.) fibigeri sp. n. (Turkey), A. (A.) bidzilyai sp. n. (Russia: Transbaikalia), A. (A.) caucasella sp. n. (Russia: Caucasus) and A. (T.) syriella sp. n. (Syria). Lectotypes for A. maculosella (Stainton, 1851), A. dimorpha Petry, 1904 and A. minorella (Rebel, 1899) and a neotype for A thpunctella ([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775) are designated. Zusammenfassung. Die paläarktische Gattung Acompsia wird revidiert und zwei Untergattungen wer- den berücksichtigt: Acompsia Hübner, 1825 and Telephila Meyrick, 1923. Insgesamt 17 Arten werden detailliert behandelt und Genitalien sowie Adulte abgebildet. 7 neue Arten werden beschrieben: Acompsia (A.) pyrenaella sp. n. (Spanien: Pyrenäen), A. (A.) ponomarenkoae sp. n. (Albanien, Griechenland), A. (A.) schepleri sp. n. (Turkey), A. (A.) fibigeri sp. n. (Türkei), A. (A.) bidzilyai sp. n. (Russland: Transbaikalien), A. (A.) caucasella sp. n. (Russland: Kaukasus) und A. (T.) syriella sp. n. (Syrien). Lectotypen fur A maculosella (Stainton, 1851), A. dimorpha Petry, 1904 and A minorella (Rebel, 1899) sowie ein Neotypus für A. tripunctella ([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775) werden designiert. Key words. Lepidoptera, Gelechiidae, Acompsia, revision, new species. Acompsia is a genus of 17 species of gelechiid moths whose members are mainly distributed in montane areas of Europe. The definition of the genus is somewhat dis- puted and pending on authors includes or excludes taxa of Telephila Meyrick, 1923 (see below). However, the taxonomy of species was regarded as well known until very recently. The discovery of a new species in the Italian Alps (Huemer 1998) revealed a number of additional taxonomic problems within the genus. Specimens hitherto as- signed to A. tripunctella frequently proved misidentified and sometimes turned out to belong to undescribed taxa. Consequently a review of the genus appeared necessary.
