Macalla glastianalis Schaus, 1922 - [provisional generic placement, new genus needed]
Macalla glastianalis was listed as Incertae sedis in Solis (1993). It requires a new genus, inclusion of several Neotropical species, and description of new species. It was first collected by A. Blanchard in Texas in the early 1970’s (MAS unpub.) (1).
