synonyms

Coleophora chrysocomae Hering, 1942.

notes

Hering (1942b) described hid chrysocomae on the basis of material that he had reared from Aster linosyris. It is unconceivable that the synonymy above implies an extension of the palate of
odorariella to this plant. Rather it must be assumed that during the breeding, or the labelling that followed, something went astray.
