Taxonomic Notes: Kearfottia albifasciella Fernald, 1904 was inadvertently assigned to 300007, a P number preoccupied by D. walshella (Clemens, 1862), in Pohl & Nanz (eds.) (2023). The number has been corrected to 300007.5n. (The reassignment was needed when the concept of Dahlica was expanded to include the the former genus Siederia.)
