Abstract
Of 8 previously unstudied calopterygine taxa, the ITS 1 and 2 was sequenced and inserted into a pre-existing phylogenetic tree of all Eurasian and American genera. ITS is mainly appropriate for looking at shallow phylogenetic relationships, and resolved the relationship within and between genera best, with weak support for relationships at the subfamily level. Thus, Atrocalopreryx-Matrona was found to be a complex but very robust clade, while Vestal is s.l. was confirmed to consist of 2 distinct genera. The generic versus specific or subspecific status of few other taxa is discussed. Within Mnais and Vestalis, the position was tested of 2 suspected "aberrant" members, M. gregoryi and V. beryllae. Both were confirmed to belong to the genera to which they had been traditionally assigned.
