THE CISCHSATI QOAP.TERLY JOURNAL OF SCIENCE. Vol. II. APRIL, 1875. No. 2. Tineina of the Central United States.— By V. T. Chambeks. ^6yle, gen. nov. Though the species described below is very near LitJiocolletis, I have felt compelled to erect for it this new genus. The neuration of the fore wings is exactly that of Lithocolletis, except that the marginal veins other than the first costal and first dorsal are very indistinct. That of the hind wings is nearer to that of Ch'acilaria, the subcostal proceeding almost straight to the apex, but being very faint. The dis-cal (?) vein is furcate on the posterior margin, and the median (?) is short and simple ; but the costal margin is not at all excised, rather in this respect resembling Elachuta than either LithocoUetis or Gracilaria. The head of the single specimen before me is smooth, and fi'om its appear-ance I think it never had a tuft, though as the vertex is a little de-nuded, it possibly may have had a small one ; the form of the head and the antenna? are those of Lif/ioco^/eEs, the antennae not reaching the apex of the wings ; the maxillary palpi, though small, are distinct, resemblin.!, those of some of the small species of Gracilaria, while the labial palj, are a little larger than in JAthocoUetis, and smaller than in Gracilario with the second joint somewhat clavate, and the third more than ha' as long as the second, and pointed, thus resembling in form the palpi ( a true Gelechia more than those of L'dhocolletis. In the dead inse-the maxillary palpi are porrected and the labial recurved, drooping . little. The tongue is small and sparingly scaled, and the cilia a about as in LithocoUetis.
