Baldizzone, G. and Landry, J.-F. (2012). "Kasyniana shardana Baldizzone, sp. n. (Lepidoptera: Oecophoridae).", SHILAP Revista de Lepidopterología, 40(158), pp. 197-205.


This work describes Kasyniana shardana Baldizzone, sp. n., a species discovered in Sardinia. It closely resembles K. diminutella (Rebel, 1931) which occurs in continental Europe. The two species can be distinguished by their colouration, differences in male and female genitalia, and DNA barcode sequences (mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase I, or COI gene).
