Abstract

The three known North American species of Bryolymnia Hampson, 1908 are reviewed and three additional species are described as new. Two additional species, Elaphria ensina (Barnes, 1907) and Cryphia viridata (Harvey, 1876) are transferred to Bryolymnia as new combinations. The North American species are compared with related species in Central America. Adults of 11 species and male and female genitalia, where available, are illustrated.
