  • Caloptilia populetorum (Zeller, 1839) was added to the list based on DNA barcoded and then subsequently removed due to possible confusion with 0640 Caloptilia strictella. The true identity of C. strictella is unsettled, see Landry et al. (2013:18).
  • Barcode of Life (BOLD) - Caution: Some specimens shown may not be sequenced. DNA barcode provides evidence of relatedness not proof of identification.
