Taxonomic Notes: Myelopsis minutulella (Hulst, 1887) is restored as the valid name. This species was erroneously listed in the Hodges 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.
