Abstract

We review and illustrate the four species of Choreutidae recorded from Madeira - Anthophila threnodes (Walsingham), A. fabriciana (Linnaeus), Choreutis nemorana (Hubner), and Tebenna micalis (Mann) - and describe and illustrate for the first time the male of A. threnodes, as well as the biology of this Madeiran endemic. We provide brief notes on each of the species and give short diagnoses for correctly identifying them. Finally, we discuss previous misidentifications of Madeiran choreutids and the occurrence of choreutids on other oceanic islands.
