Stigmella robusta Remeikis & Stonis  ; in Stonis et al. 2016d: 41 View Cited Treatment , figs 18, 27, 103–107.

Material examined. 4 ♂ (holotype and paratypes), 3 ♀ (paratypes), PERU, Dept. Ancash, 35 km SE Huaraz, Cerro Cahuish, Quabrada Pucavado , 9°40'50"S, 77°13'32"W, elevation about 4100 m, 15–18.ii.1987, O. Karsholt, genitalia slide nos RA 566♂ (holotype), RA 575♂, RA 576♂, RA 580♀ (paratypes) ( ZMUC)GoogleMaps  .

Diagnosis. Belongs to the S. expressa  group. The combination of gnathos with closely juxtaposed processes, angular inner lobe of valva, large, distally four-lobed uncus, set of 2–3 large cornuti and cluster of small spine-like cornuti, and pale, speckled forewing distinguishes S. robusta  sp. nov. from all other Stigmella  species, including the members of S. expressa  group.

Male ( Fig. 35View FIGURE 35). Described in Stonis et al. 2016d: 41, fig. 103. Forewing length 3.5–4.5 mm; wingspan 7.6–9.6 mm.
