Elachista sasae Sinev & Sruoga, 1995  

Elachista planicara Kaila, 1998: 57   , syn. nov.

Remarks. Elachista planicara   was described from two female specimens collected on Kunashir Island in early August ( Kaila 1998). The original description and illustrations ( Kaila 1998: figs. 8–11) agree completely with the type specimens of Elachista sasae   . Based on this evidence, E. planicara   is considered a junior synonym of E. sasae   . Elachista sasae   was described from the southern part of Sakhalin Island in the second half of July and to date is known only from the type locality. Hence, Kunashir Island is a new distributional record for this species.
