"The Nacophorini from the Andes of South America are briefly reviewed and a new key to the genera, based on male genitalia, is given. The genus Dentinalia Heimlich is redefined, and five species from Argentina are described as new; the moth described as Salpis unica Rindge, from Chile, is transferred to the present genus and the male is described. Keys to the seven species of Dentinalia are presented. Seven species are described as new in Salpis Mabille; six are from Argentina and one is from Bolivia. Another species is transferred to Salpis and redescribed; it is from Ecuador and Venezuela, by far the most northern distribution record for a member of this genus. Because five of the new species of Salpis are placed in group III, a revised key to the male genitalia of that group is given. All the species and their genitalia are illustrated"--P. [1].
