Heads up: Some or all of the identifications affected by this split may have been replaced with identifications of Grapholitini. This happens when we can't automatically assign an identification to one of the output taxa. Review identifications of Grapholita 178063

Taxonomic Split 133938 (Committed on 04-11-2023)

Genus Grapholita (senso lato) is split into three genera, Aspila, Grapholita (senso stricto), and Ephippiphora, in Hu et al. 2023 (https://doi.org/10.1111/cla.12543). Some species of Grapholita (senso lato) are unplaced to these three genera and remain in Grapholita.

Moth Photographers Group has adopted the split, and BugGuide follows MPG.

Most continents with one of the three genera present also have a second or all three. The genera contain species with difficult photo-identifications. Thus it is difficult to access the ranges of the genera, and I have not attempted to use atlases to automatically place genus-rank records to one of the output genera. Genus-rank records will be upranked to tribe Grapholitini and will need to be reidentified.
