Pseudocomotis, new genus, is described to accommodate Orthotaenia scardiana Dognin, Cnephasia citroleuca Meyrick (both formerly in Orthocomotis Dognin), Eulia agatharcha Meyrick, and two new species, serendipita and albolineana. The presence of a broad saccus - vincu-1um complex, hami, a hairpencil from abdominal segment VIII in the male, and the wide basal separation of hindwing veins M2 and M3, indicate that Pseudocomotis belongs in the Chlidanotini (Chlidanotinae). The single female associated with the new genus lacks the abdomen, prohibiting genitalic diagnosis and comparison with closely related genera. Phylogenetic relationships among the Polyorthini, Hilarographini, and Chlidanotini are discussed.
