Hyalinoecia bilineata

Dear list mates,

The 'Hyalinoecia bilineata' that Salva enquired about is not one of the 
quillworms, the 'real' Hyalinoecias.  It is superficially similar and was 
included in that genus until Kucheruk erected the genus Aponuphis in 1978.  
Aponuphis belongs to the Onuphinae, while Hyalinoecia is a Hyalinoeciinae 
(just to emphasise how different the two genera really are).

There has been some controversy about the number of species belonging to 
Aponuphis.  Presently I am describing three new species from eastern 
Australia and hope to complete in the near future a revision of the four 
Mediterranean and Atlantic species (together with Gerard Bellan).

Cheers, Hannelore.
