Remarks
Platphalonidia, has been synonymized with Phalonidia by Razowski, 2011: "Remarks: Platphalonidia was described for Phalonia felix Walsingham, 1895 and over 10 other species from the New World. Unfortunately the type-species belongs to Phalonidia and differs from the remaining New World species."
Only felix was officially moved. The rest appear to have been moved to Platphalonia by Metzler & Albu, 2013, however, as of 8/18/2015 Tortricid.net has those other species placed in Phalonidia.
