 Zanclomenophra Gen. n.

Type species: subusta Warren.

The single species was originally described in Zanclopera but differs in a number of striking features. The male antennae are fasciculate but also weakly serrate, with the ciliae in tufts that are strong incurved. The hindwing is apically excavate as in Zanclopera, but the forewing margin is more irregular with a strong notch at the rather weak M2 vein. The male fovea is prominent, deep, and there is a setal comb on sternite 3.

The male genitalia have the valve cucullus only weakly differentiated from the rest of the valve, the apex of which is slightly excavate. A distinctive, long, flatly digitate process arises from the base of the valve. The juxta is a vertical dumb-bell shape. The uncus is triangular, square ended. The aedeagus and vesica are narrow, the latter with an irregular distal cornutus.

In the female genitalia the apodemes of the ovipositor lobes and the associated intersegmental membrane are long. The neck of the bursa is twisted, scobinate, both features intensifying towards the small distal bulb. There is no signum but the bulb is ringed by two broad bands of scobination.
