Taxonomic Notes: Myelopsis minutulella (Hulst, 1887) is restored as the valid name. This species was erroneously listed in Hodges et al. (1983) (Checklist) as "5719 minutularia (Hulst, 1887)" with "minutulella (Hulst, 1890)" as a synonym. Originally described as "minutularia", the spelling was changed to "minutulella" on the corrections page of same work.
