Abstract

The identity and scientific name of the cocoa moth or cocoa pod borer, Conopomorpha cramerella (Snellen), the major pest of cocoa in South-East Asia and generally recorded in the literature as Acrocercops cramerella, are clarified. Three previously unrecognized congeneric species are described and differentiated, viz. C. oceanica sp. n., C. sinensis sp. n. and C. litchiella sp. n. Wing pattern, male and female genitalia are figured for each species.
