Coleophora onopordiella Zeller, 1849
from Toll (1962a)
Laterally compressed, bivalved, composite leaf case. The case is made up out of a relatively large number of some 15 leaf fragments, that extend saw-like dorsally and ventrally. Mouth angle about 30°.
References to Stachys probably concern C. wockeella; the cases are quite similar (Nel & Buvat, 1992a).
distribution within Europe
France, Italy, and from Poland to Greece and Thrace (Fauna Europaea, 2009).
Hering (1957a: 110) writes onopordinis, but this is a simple writing error, as is evident from the index.
