Diagnosis. Traugott-Olsen & Schmidt Nielsen (1977) give a detailed description of this species. It is a rather small species as compared to other species treated in the present paper. It is darkest of all the species with brownish grey forewing ground colour from where the median fascia and another fascia consisting of the medially joint costal and tornal spots are clearly visible ( Figs. 1, 2 View FIGURES 1 – 6 ). Externally, E. bedellella   varies a lot in size, and to some extent in the darkness of the ground colour. This variation is largely attributed to the presence of two generations per year, the first generation usually somewhat larger and paler than the second. The male genitalia of E. bedellella   are characterised by the rather broad phallus with one rounded cornutus with very short blunt tooth ( Figs. 58 View FIGURE 58 A, B). The juxta lobes are ’average’ in length and width among the species of the E. bedellella   complex, strongly curved ( Fig. 19 View FIGURES 19 – 25 ). The female genitalia are characterised by the barrelshaped, expanded caudal part of ductus bursae similar to that of E. lugdunensis   ( Fig. 60 View FIGURES 60 – 61 ). The female genitalia of these species differ by the shorter ductus bursae of E. bedellella   , being as long as the corpus bursae, while that of E. lugdunensis   is twice longer than corpus bursae ( Fig. 61 View FIGURES 60 – 61 ). E. lugdunensis   has a small, rounded and spinose signum; in E. bedellella   the signum is lacking.

Distribution. Widely distributed in Europe. Outside Europe distributed in Russia: Transbaikalia and Buryatia.

Remarks. New to San Marino. Some of the country records listed in Kaila (2004) may prove to be attributable to one or other of the other taxa now considered valid species.
