Nepticula andina Meyrick, 1915: 255  , 256.

Stigmella andina ( Meyrick, 1915)  , in Puplesis & Robinson 2000: 24, figs 14, 88, 89, 209. Stigmella andina ( Meyrick, 1915)  , in Stonis et al. 2016d: 67, 68, figs 186–190.

Material examined. 14 ♂ (lectotype and paralectotypes), 6 ♀ (paralectotypes), PERU, La Oroya, 3720 m, vii.1914, Parish, genitalia slide nos 20612 BMNH (lectotype), 28841 BMNH (paralectotype) ( BMNH)  .

Diagnosis. Belongs to the S. marmorea  species group. The pale, ochreous cream or yellowish cream, male forewing (in females with purple-brown apical apex), wide, rather square valva with small, curved apical process together with 10 very large horn-like cornuti in the male genitalia distinguish this species from all other Stigmella  species.
