Abstract

Coleophora paeltsaella was described in 1999 with the type locality Pältsa, the northernmost mountain in Sweden. However, it soon became obvious that the species showed similarities with Coleophora derasofasciella Klimesch, 1952, distributed in the Alps. They also share the same host plant. Additional examination of the genitalia morphology of the two species complemented with bionomic and DNA studies stronly suggest that they belong to the same species, and that Coleophora derasofasciella Klimesch, 1952 is the valid name.
