TitleThree new species of the so-called Glyphipterigidae Auctorum from Japan (Lepidoptera)
JournalZoologische Mededelingen
AbstractThe following pages contain descriptions of three new species of what has been formerly indicated as the "Glyphipterigidae auctorum", from Japan and Taiwan, almost simultaneously discovered by the first author in the Issiki Collection, now at the National Museum of Natural History, Washington, and collected by the second author in Japan.
The original material will be deposited in the two above named institutions.
