NOTE

In this volume several old names of longstanding use have been dropped. Peronea Curtis (1824) is preoccupied by Peronea Rafinesque (1815) and the name Acleris Hiibner (1825) is substituted. All species referred to Peronea by Meyrick, and others obviously conspecific with them, are placed in Acleris. Some species referred to Peronea by Meyrick do not belong in Acleris but are retained here until revisionary works make proper disposition of them.
