  • Pinned specimens of related species. (Hint: select View by Region on the related species page.)
Taxonomic Notes: Gypsonoma nitidulana (Lienig & Zeller, 1846), is treated as a extralimital (Palearctic) and excluded from the NA list in Pohl et al. (2018). Reported from the the Yukon in Lafontaine & Wood (1997), voucher material could not be located and the record was declared erroneous. However, DNA barcode does support nitidulana in Canada and will continue to be listed on MPG pending further study.
