Résumé :

The European and Mediterranean species of the Acalyptris platani and A. staticis groups are revised, with respectivelyfour and six species. Three new species are described: A. pistaciae Van Nieukerken sp. n. (from Greece, Cyprus and Tur-key, on Pistacia) in the platani group, A. limoniastri Van Nieukerken sp. n. (from Algeria and Tunisia, associated withLimoniastrum) and A. lesbia Van Nieukerken & Hull sp. n. (from Greece: Lesvos,on Limonium gmelini) in the staticisgroup. Lectotypes are selected for A. minimella (Rebel, 1924) and A. staticis (Walsingham, 1908). The European speciesof  the  A.  platani  group  are  leafminers  on  Anacardiaceae,  Platanaceae  and  Loranthaceae,  the  species  of  the  A.  staticisgroup  feed  on  Plumbaginaceae,  except  A.  pyrenaica  A.  &  Z.  Laštůvka,  for  which  the  host  is  unknown,  but  likely  tobelong to another family. Immatures are described for five species, final instar larvae and pupal exuviae for all species inthe A. platani group and for A. lesbia. Larvae and pupae of the latter species differ markedly from the A. platani group.Recorded parasitoids are listed. CO1 barcodes are provided for seven species. The groups are phylogenetically not veryclose; the monophyly of Acalyptris and the phylogeny on the basis of CO1 (mt-DNA) sequences are discussed.
