Blurb/Shorttext:
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Clarkeophlebia is an enigmatic and almost-unknown gelechioid moth genus. It contains a single species, Clarkeophlebia argentea, and is apparently endemic to Fatu Hiva in the Marquesas Islands of Polynesia. It was originally described as Acanthophlebia, but this name had earlier been given to a genus of prong-gilled mayflies.Its relationships are not well determined. While it is superficially similar to the American concealer moth Fabiola tecta (which is larger and less colorful), in its anatomical details it seems more similar to Adeana leucoxantha (another puzzling Polynesian moth) and/or Asymphorodes. However, it is unique in bearing strange spines of unknown function on the wings, at least in the males.
