The present group, erected by Common in 1958 (as a subfamily, Epitymbiinae) occurs chiefly in Australia and New Guinea, with stragglers in other parts of the Indo-Australian Region. Certain species from New Guinea have been assigned by me originally to the "subfamily" Cnephasiinae, now generally regarded a tribe, Cnephasiini (Diakonoff, 1953), but the features of this Holarctic group do not agree with those of the species in question satisfactorily. Therefore I am adopting Common's subfamily in the sense of a tribe, Epitymbiini, being satisfied that it is a natural, though not particularly spectular group of Tortricidae, with an Australian and Papuan distribution.
