Cnephasia jactatana (Black-lyre Leafroller Moth)

Synonyms: Cnestolitha voluta; Paedisca privatana; Sciaphila flexivittana

Wikipedia Abstract

The black-lyre leafroller moth ("Cnephasia" jactatana) is a tortrix moth species (family Tortricidae). It is endemic to New Zealand. It belongs to the subfamily Tortricinae and therein to tribe Cnephasiini. But among these, it is in fact not close enough to the type species of Cnephasia – Cnephasia pasiuana of Europe – to properly belong in that genus. Alternatively, it has variously been referred to Batodes (= Ditula) or Paedisca (= Epinotia); if anything it might belong to the latter, presently circumscribed as a large and wide-ranging group of uncertain monophyly. But its actual genus has yet to be determined with certainty.
