tribe consists here solely of the type genus. The last five genera of the
previous sequence have somewhat similar facies, but there are no really clear
synapomorphies to enable them to be grouped with Pangrapta;
none shows, in the male the sinuous uncus, narrow valves with basal or distal
processes, prominent cornuti in the aedeagus vesica, or, in the female, the
densely setose eighth segment that particularly characterises that genus.
