Simplicia cornicalis. Material of this introduced, Southeast Asian species was originally identified as Simplicia caeneusalis. The first records were from southern Florida by Jim Vargo in 2007 and from Vernon Brou, Jr. in Louisiana in 2008. Simplicia caeneusalis was placed in synonymy with Simplicia cornicalis by Holloway (2008) after examination of the genitalia of the type in Copenhagen. Holloway (2008) includes the full synonymy for the species. Although Simplicia cornicalis resembles some Zanclognatha species, especially Z. marcidilinea, genitalia structure and DNA data place it as the sister group to the Zanclognatha + Chytolita Grote clade.
