Heteroneura

Opostega salaciella, from here.


Belongs within: Glossata.
Contains: Incurvarioidea, Ditrysia.

The Heteroneura is a major clade of Lepidoptera, basally characterised by the coupling of the fore and hind wings (though this has been lost in some derived subgroups). Major subgroups include the leaf-mining Nepticuloidea, some species of which are among the smallest lepidopterans (Grimaldi & Engel 2005).

Synapomorphies (from Grimaldi & Engel 2005): Female genitalia with gonopore separate from ovipore, no connection between the two tracts; reduction in branching of Rs veins in hind wing; wings coupled with frenulum and retinaculum; loss of abdominal sternum 1.
