Abstract:

"Three new species of Apatelodidae are described from Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, and Paraguay: Apatelodes navarroi sp. n., Apatelodes chalupae sp. n., and Apatelodes ulfi sp. n., and are figured with their genitalia. Detailed examination of primary types leads to the establishment of a new synonymy: A. florisa Schaus,
1929 = A. schreiteri Schaus, 1924, syn. n., and a revised status for another Apatelodidae species previously misplaced in the Bombycidae: Apatelodes brunnea (Dognin, 1916), comb. n."
