|Title||New and old species of Glyphipterigidae and a new species of Acrolepiidae from Japan and the Far East (Lepidoptera)|
|Abstract||The often so gaudy coloured Palaearctic representatives of the family Glyphipterigidae are receiving renewed attention after a neglect of many years. In the USSR several genera of the Choreutinae have been revised (the late A. S. Danilevsky, 1964; A. S. Danilevsky & V. I. Kuznetsov, 1973) and a survey of the family in Japan has been initiated by revisions and descriptions of species of Glyphipterix Hübner, Brenthia Clemens, Tebenna Billberg, Choreutis Hübner, etc. (S. Moriuti & T. Saito, 1964; Y. Arita, 1971, 1971a, 1975, 1976). The first author of the present paper is preparing a revision of the Palaearctic Glyphipterigidae, while J. B. Heppner (University of Florida), is working on the Nearctic fauna of these insects.|
Descriptions of four new species of Hilarographa Zeller and of seven new species of Glyphipterix Hübner from Japan and the Far East, and of a new Digitivalva species from Japan are presented below. The greater part of the material at hand has been collected by the second author, who is the specialist of the group in Japan. The first author studied the important Issiki Collection in the Washington Museum, made the descriptions and is responsible for the figures which were made by the artist and amateur entomologist, Mr, A. C. M. van Dijk of The Hague, Netherlands, and a few by himself.
The types will be deposited in the collections of the following institutions, as indicated in the text: Zoological Institute of the Academy of Sciences, Leningrad, USSR (ZIAS); National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution, Washington D.C., USA (NMNH); Zoological Laboratory, Faculty of Agriculture, Meijo University, Nagoya, Japan (ZLMU); Zoological Laboratory, Hokkaido University, Hokkaido, Japan (ZLHU); and Rijksmuseum van Natuurlijke Historie, Leiden, the Netherlands (RMNH).
