Elachista rosselloensis Nel & Varenne 2019a: 17   , figs. 22–25.

Examined material. Holotype Ƌ: France, Pyrénées-Orientales , Ille / Têt, 240 m, uv, 12.IX.2018, Th. Varenne leg., genitalia slide JN n°33141 ( RCTV).  

BOLD Specimen ID TLMF 27062; BOLD Sequence ID LEASV310-19.

BIN: none

Identity: Elachista rosselloensis Varenne & Nel, 2019  

Remarks. Elachista rosselloensis   was described from a single male holotype. The worn specimen with overall white appearance was compared with other superficially similar looking species ( Nel & Varenne 2019a) but not with the morphologically closest species E. bedellella (Sircom, 1848)   (Kaila in litt.). We have been able to obtain a short sequence of the holotype with 259bp which, however, corresponds to E. squamosella (Duponchel, 1843)   with 99.6% similarity. The latter species is quite different externally and in genitalia morphology and similarity in DNA barcode may be due to the short sequence. E. rosseloensis   was not considered in the almost simultaneously published World Catalogue of Elachistidae ( Kaila 2019)   .
