Similar Species:
  • Compsolechia crescentifasciella (Chambers, 1874)
  • Pinned specimens of related species. (Hint: select View by Region on the related species page.)
Synonymy: Compsolechia comparanda Meyrick, 1929
Taxonomic Notes: Anacampsis comparanda (Meyrick, 1929) is apparently indistinguishable from Compsolechia crescentifasciella (Chambers, 1874) by DNA, genitalia, and habitus based on what is currently known and likely refer to the same species. Records for comparanda are treated as referring to crescentifasciella, which has priority, pending further investigation.
