|Title||The identity of Stigmella Zelleriella (Snellen, 1875), a senior synonym of S. Repentiella (Wolff, 1955) (Lepidoptera, Nepticulidae)|
|Abstract||The identity of Stigmella zelleriella (Snellen, 1875) n. comb. is fixed by designation of a lectotype.|
Nepticula repentiella Wolff, 1955, and Nepticula lappovimella Svensson, 1976, are placed in synonomy with S. zelleriella, which is redescribed and discriminated from resembling species. It appears to have a northern distribution, occurring in sand-dunes on the Salix repens L.-complex and on moors in Scandinavia on Salix lapponum L. The related S. benanderella (Wolff, 1955), which occurs on the same foodplants, is also diagnosed.
