(Synempora andesae)

Description

Synempora andesae is a species of moth belonging to the family Neopseustidae. It was described by Davis & Nielsen in 1980. It is known from Argentina and Chile. The habitat is characterized by a dominance of Nothofagus dombeyi, with a very dense understorey of Chusquea culeou. It appears to be possible that the bamboo C. culeou could be the food plant.
