          Abstract

          An improved diagnosis of the genus Tricerophora is provided, and its position within Gelechiidae is briefly discussed. A new generic synonym is established: Leucophylla Janse, 1960, syn. n. of Tricerophora Janse, 1958. Six new species are described: T. pundamilia sp. n. (RSA), T. rukinga sp. n. (Kenya), T. nigrinervis sp. n. (RSA, Namibia), T. brumale sp. n. (Namibia), T. acutivalva sp. n. (Iran), T. minimorum sp. n. (Namibia). The following new combinations are proposed: Tricerophora nigribasis (Janse, 1960), comb. n., Tricerophora objecta (Meyrick, 1921), comb. n. A key to the species is given based on external characters and the genitalia of both sexes. Adults and genitalia of all species are illustrated.
