A new species belonging to the genus Anonaepestis Ragonot (Lepidoptera, Phycitinae) attacking black pepper (Piper nigrum) in West Africa

  • J. D. Bradley (a1)

A Phycitine species bred from larvae boring in stems of black pepper (Piper nigrum) in the Cameroons and Central African Republic is described as new and is named Anonaepestis tamsi sp.n. The species is differentiated from A. bengalella Rag., the only other known representative of the genus, and illustrations are given of the adults and female genitalia of both species and the male genitalia of A. tamsi.
