Taxonomic Notes: Nemapogon clematella of authors; (not Fabricius, 1781) replaces clematella (Fabricius, 1781) (Pohl in Pohl & Nanz (eds.) 2023). The NA population is likely an undescribed species based on marked differences in genitalia and DNA barcode with "true" N. clematella evidently confined to Europe (J-F Landry, pers. comm., 7/14/2021).
