Phaneta viridis and Phaneta hodgesi, new species, are described based largely on material in the United States Museum of Natural History collected by R. W Hodges. Phaneta pastigiata (Heinrich), which has similarities with P. hodgesi, is reviewed. Adults and genitalia of the three species are illustrated.

Nine previously unrecognized species of Phaneta Stephens (Tortricidae) are described from western North America: P. browni, P. arenana, P. labiata, P. gohlinana, P. cibolana, P. parvula, P. clementeana, P. baloghi, and P. vogelana. Reviewed are: Phaneta corctdana (Zeller) and Phaneta mormonensis (Heinrich), which have male genitalia similar to those of P. browni and P. arenana; Phaneta indagatricana (Heinrich) and Phaneta misturana (Heinrich), due to similarity in forewing pattern with P. labiata and P. gohlinana; Phaneta stramineana (Walsingham), Phaneta parvana (Walsingham), and Phaneta grindeliana (Busck), close relatives of P. clementeana; P. minimana (Walsingham), a species misidentified in North American collections for more than eighty years; and Phaneta latens (Heinrich), which is similar in male genitalia to P. labiata. Phaneta verecundana Blanchard is recognized as a synonym of P. indagatricana. Adults and genitalia are illustrated for each species.

Phaneta kramerana and Phaneta donahuei, new species, are described from southern California. Ten congeners that might be confused with the new taxa based on forewing appearance are reviewed: Phaneta tenuiana (Walsingham), Phaneta nepotinana (Heinrich), Phaneta fertoriana (Heinrich), Phaneta subminitnana (Heinrich), Phaneta complicana (McDunnough), Phaneta migratana (Heinrich), Phaneta alatana (McDunnough), Phaneta cinereolineana (Heinrich), Phaneta crassana (McDunnough), and Phaneta spectana (McDunnough). Adults and genitalia are illustrated for each species.

Pelochrista sullivani, new species, and Pelochrista lynxana, new species, are described, respectively, from coastal savannah habitat in Mississippi and North Carolina and from prairie/glade habitat in Kentucky, Mississippi, and Ohio. Four species with similarities to the new taxa are reviewed, Pelochrista matutina (Grote), Pelochrista fiskeana (Kearfott), Pelochrista pandana (Kearfott) and Pelochrista symholaspis (Meyrick), with P. pandana being recognized as a junior synonym of P. fiskeana. Also reviewed is Pelochrista notialis (Miller), a taxon once confused with P. matutina.

Eucosma Hübner is the largest genus in the Tortricidae with more than 290 named species. Historically, there has been confusion about the assignment of species to Eucosma and related genera, a problem which is perpetuated by the lack of a type specimen for the type species, E. circulana Hübner. Here we designate a neotype for E. circulana following analysis of eight North American species having similarities with that taxon. Eucosma circulana and E. gemellana Heinrich are redescribed, the latter being elevated from subspecies to species status. Eucosma paragemellana, new species, is described from specimens previously confused with E. gemellana, and E. fraudabilis Heinrich is reviewed. Copyright © 2013 Magnolia Press.

Eucosma pulveratana (Walsingham) is reviewed along with its closest congeners, E. suadana Heinrich, E. mirosignata Heinrich, E. consobrinana Heinrich and E. aeana McDunnough. Eight new species are described that are similar to E. pulveratana in forewing pattern and genitalia: E. coconana, E. costastriata, E.floridensis, E. mojaveana, E. navajoensis, E. parapulveratana, E. seamansi, and E. sepiana. Eucosma aeana is recognized as a junipr synonym of E. suadana. Adults and genitalia of each species are illustrated.

Eucosma oraria, new species, is described from the mid-Atlantic coast of North America. It is distinguished from its closest congeners, Eucosma dorsisignatana (Clemens) and Eucosma similiana (Clemens), by size and details of forewing maculation. Reviews are provided of the last two species, including a reevaluation of their relationships with Eucosma dorsisignatana diffusana Kearfott, Eucosma dorsisignatana confluana Kearfott, and Eucosma engelana Kearfott. The new species appears to be associated with marsh habitat.
