Abstract:
A new genus, Wittinia gen. n., is proposed for Megalopygidae moths restricted to the Western Hemisphere. Two species are included: Wittinia cremor sp. n., the type species (type locality: Ecuador, camp. Bella Vista), and W. zebra sp. n. (type locality: Colombia, Boyaca, Acabuco, Vereda el Centro). A diagnosis of the genus and a list of generic autapomorphies are given.
