Switzerland: Genève, Crêts-de-Champel 16.VIII. 1948 1 ď [collector not stated] (L. Kaila prep. 3512, MHNG).

Diagnosis. A pale species with indistinct ochreous or brownish irroration on the forewing ( Figs. 3–6 View FIGURES 1 – 6 ). This species is distinct from E. bedellella   not only by the difference in appearance but also in characteristics in both male and female genitalia. In the male genitalia these species differ by the very broad barrel-shaped phallus of E. lugdunensis   that contains a cornutus consisting of small sclerotised plate with a long stout and straight tooth ( Figs. 58 View FIGURE 58 C, D). The juxta lobes of E. lugdunensis   are long and narrow (best seen in lateral view) ( Fig. 20 View FIGURES 19 – 25 ). For identification of the female genitalia, see the diagnosis of E. bedellella   above.

Distribution. SW Europe ( France, Germany, Spain, Switzerland).

Remarks. Traugott-Olsen (1985) depicts the genitalia of the holotype of Elachista coeneni   Traugott- Olsen; the characteristic cornutus of E. lugdunensis   is well visible in the illustration.
