|Title||Synonymic notes on the Glyphipterygidae, with selection of neotypes for two Phyllonorycter species, Lithocolletidae (Lepidoptera)|
|Abstract||The intended revision of the family Glyphipterygidae for the series "Microlepidoptera Palaearctica" formed an opportunity for a study of old literature and of the presumably glyphipterygid types of Johann C. Fabricius, now preserved in the Copenhagen Museum, Danmark. During this study the advisability of selection of neotypes for two common Phyllonorycter species (family Lithocolletidae), became apparent. Resulting synonymic notes and neotype selections are presented here. These notes are being published in agreement with Mr. O. Karsholt and Dr. E. Schmidt Nielsen, who are publishing jointly "Notes on some Lepidoptera described by Linnaeus, Fabricius and Ström", at this moment (1976).|
The author is obliged to the authorities of the Copenhagen Museum, for the loan of the precious material and to the following colleagues, for their kind help and interest: Dr. Ing. Niels L. Wolff and Dr. Ebbe Schmidt Nielsen, Copenhagen Museum, Danmark; Mr. Ole Karsholt, Ebbinge, Danmark; Dr. J. D. Bradley, Commonwealth Institute of Entomology, London; Dr. I. W. B. Nye and Mr. D. Carter, British Museum (Natural History), London; Mr. Gerfried Deschka, Steyr, Austria; Mr. Oswald Tiedemann, Hamburg, Western Germany; and especially, to my friend, Professor Dr. L. B. Holthuis, Leiden Museum, for his valuable advice on problems of nomenclature.
