26. Gnorimoschema jalavai Povolný, 1994   ( Gelechiidae   : Gelechiinae   )

Gnorimoschema jalavai Povolný, 1994: 58   . Type locality: Russia, SW Altai, Katun valley , 10 km W Katanda, 1200 m. BOLD: AAI5491

Palearctic distribution. Known from southern Russia (Altai Krai, Tuva, Irkutsk Oblast, Buryatia, and Zabaykalsky Krai), as well as Chukotka Peninsula in the north-eastern far east of Russia ( Sinev 2008)   .

New North American records. Canada: Yukon, Carcross sand dunes, 25 Jun 2004, 2 ♂ ( CNC)   .

Diagnosis. This species of Gnorimoschema   has dark brown forewings with a pair of large subterminal white spots that nearly touch and appear to form an interruped band. This is a very unusual pattern for Gnorimoschema   and Gnorimoschemini   in general, but otherwise there are other Gelechiidae   with somewhat similar forewing maculation, particularly among Chionodes   . In male genitalia, the broadly triangular and truncate saccus, configuration of the distal margin of the vinculum, slightly bent and distally swollen valva, linguiform gnathos and unhooked apex of phallus are collectively distinctive. The female is unknown.

Larval host. Unknown.

Note. The Canadian specimens were reported as “ G. nordlandicolella   -complex sp. 4” by Nazari & Landry (2009). The species identification was accomplished later after the holotype of G. jalavai   ( ZMH, Finland) was barcoded and its sequence was placed in the same BIN cluster. This was confirmed by the male genitalia which match. The female is unknown. The Yukon occurrence suggests that the species is native in North America   .
