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).
