Olethreutine Moths of the Midwestern United States, An Identification Guide
By Gilligan, Todd M., Donald J. Wright, and Loran D. Gibson
Ohio Biological Survey, P.O. Box 21370, Columbus, Ohio 43221-0370, 2008
A very useful book for those interested in Olethreutine moths. Covers 306 species with color photos of adults, life history information, flight periods, distribution, and microphotos of male and female genitalia. Many of the included species occur in a wider area than the midwestern states.

Three New Tortricids (Lepidoptera) From Texas
By Andre Blanchard and Edward C. Knudson
Proceedings of the Entomological Society of Washington, V.86(2), pp. 446-451, 1984
Abstract - Three new species of the family Tortricidae (Lepidoptera), Pelochrista collilonga, Grapholita hierglyphana, and Anopina texasana, are described from examples collected by authors in Texas. Male and female imagines and genitalia are figured. A lectotype for Anopina wellingtoniana (Kearfott) is designated.

Immigrant Tortricidae: Holarctic versus Introduced Species in North America
By Gilligan, T.M., J.W. Brown, J, Baixeras
Insects, 11(9), 594: 1-59., 2020
Gilligan, T.M., J.W. Brown, J, Baixeras, 2020. Immigrant Tortricidae: Holarctic versus Introduced Species in North America. Insects, 11(9), 594: 1-59. https://doi.org/10.3390/insects11090594

Abstract: In support of a comprehensive update to the checklist of the moths of North America, we attempt to determine the status of 151 species of Tortricidae present in North America that may be Holarctic, introduced, or sibling species of their European counterparts. Discovering the natural distributions of these taxa is often difficult, if not impossible, but several criteria can be applied to determine if a species that is present in both Europe and North America is natively Holarctic, introduced, or represented by different but closely related species on each continent.
