Type species: rubrolimbraria Guenée
Synonym: Parachlorissa Inoue (type species acutangula
Inoue = rubrolimbraria).
This genus is related to Hemithea but the male
antennae are narrowly bipectinate to two thirds rather than ciliate. The single
species is very small with acutely angled hindwings and forewing apex. The wing
margins are lined with red, the cilia beyond them white. Unlike Hemithea and
the next genus, the male third sternite lacks setal patches.
The male and female genitalia have the features mentioned
for the Hemithea
Duponchel group but are distinguished by, in the male,
two processes arising from the basal half of the valve costa, the more distal,
larger slender, digitate, and the more basal being rather thorn-like, and, in
the female, a very broad and densely setose ostial pocket.
