Three North American species currently placed in the genus Dysgonia Hübner are moved to Neadysgonia gen. n. A fourth species, N. telma, is described from southeastern United States and a neotype is designated for closely related species N. smithii. The generic placement of the new genus is discussed. © J.

Two new species of Campatonema Jones are described, C. tapantia sp. n. from Costa Rica and C. yanayacua sp. n. from Ecuador. A third species, Campatonema lineata (Schaus), is transferred to Campatonema from "Sabulodes." The female of Campatonema is described for the first time, and the tribal placement of Campatonema is discussed. © J. Bolling Sullivan.

The recently proposed genus Neadysgonia Sullivan, 2010, was preceded in the literature by Gondysia Berio, 1955, a monotypic genus based on specimens without locality labels but presumed to be from Madagascar. The genus Gondysia replaces Neadysgonia and the species G. pertorrida Berio, 1955, becomes a junior synonym of G. consobrina (Guenée, 1852). © J.B. Sullivan, A. Legrain.

So far, two spcies of Neotherina Dognin have been recorded in Costa Rica. N. imperilla (Dognin) occurs primarily at altitudes between 1100 and 1700 meters and N. callas (Druce) which is widely distributed above 1100 meters. A third, new species, N. xanthosa Sullivan and Chacón is described from altitudes above 2400 meters. Heterogeneity of the genus is discussed. © J. Bolling Sullivan, Isidro Chacón.

Historically, the name Phyllodonta latrata (Guenée) has been applied to what is a complex of three undescribed species in Costa Rica. They are very similar in maculation, but can be differentiated by genitalic characters and barcodes. P. alajuela Sullivan, sp. n. occurs at lower altitudes in the northwestern part of Costa Rica whereas P. intermediata Sullivan, sp. n. and P. esperanza Sullivan, sp. n. are found at partially overlapping altitudes in the central mountain ranges. © J.
