Aquita Walker

Type species: horridella Walker (= tactalis Walker), Australia.

Zia Walker (type species tactalis).

This genus should probably only include the type species, which has rather elongate, longitudinally streaky black, grey and white forewings, male genitalia with a sequence of processes running ventrally from the valve costa, and female genitalia with a
long, slender bursa that lacks signa. Two Bornean species were originally assigned to the genus. One is transferred to Barasa Walker. The other is described below with a related new species, but both are definitely misplaced in Aquita.
