Saccurosa Gen. n.

Type species: calcicola sp. n.
This is another member of the Narosa group with the characteristic forewing venation and filiform male antennae. The wings are brown with short darker bars submarginally, subtornally and medially over the dorsal half; the medial has two white flecks within it posterior to the cell. The female is unknown but there are several diagnostic features in the male genitalia: the elongate saccus; the stepped saccular margin to the valve; long, narrow blades arising from the base of the sacculus; a slender, upcurved rather than flexed gnathus; a long row of small cornuti in the vesica of the slender aedeagus.
