Carpatolechia nephomicta (Meyrick, 1932)
A Brief Introduction
Carpatolechia nephomicta, originally distributed in Japan and southern Korea, is a gelechid species new and recorded in Taiwan fauna. Carpatolechia shows close affinity with Pseudotelphusa, Teleiodes and Neotelphusa. Here, the taxonomic status proposed by Park & Ponomarenko (2007) is followed. Carpatolechia nephomicta shares very similar wing pattern with C. nigrifasciata, and it is difficult to tell them apart except comparison of male and female genitalia.
