Anthony W. Thomas - - gen.
Distribution: Type Locality: "Canada West" [Ontario].
Similar Species:
  • Acleris maximana is separated by genitalia.
  • Pinned specimens of related species. (Hint: select View by Region on the related species page.)
Synonymy: Teras nigrolinea Robinson, 1869
Acleris disputabilis Obraztsov, 1963
Teras ferruginiguttana Fernald, 1882
Taxonomic Notes: Acleris nigrolinea (Robinson, 1869) includes as synonyms A. ferruginiguttana Fernald, 1882 and A. disputabilis Obraztsov, 1963 in the Hodges 1983 Checklist following Powell (1964). However, that treatment would seem to be superseded by Razowski (1966) which treats A. disputabilis as a valid species with A. n. var. ferruginiguttana McDunnough 1934 as a synonym and ferruginiguttana as nomen dubium.
