  • Powell & Opler (2009) suggest that Ypsolopha dentiferella, frustella and canariella may be conspecific. BOLD mtDNA data seems to support that conjecture. As of 2016, the BIN group, BOLD:AAC0506, contains all three species with all three placed randomly in the TaxonID Tree.
  • Pinned specimens of related species. (Hint: select View by Region on the related species page.)
