Synonyms and other taxonomic changes
Nepticula caryaefoliella Clemens, 1861.
Braun (1917) considered this species a synonym of the walnut-feeding Stigmella juglandifoliella, but Wilkinson & Scoble (1979) synonymized it with the hophornbeam-feeding Stigmella ostryaefoliella. However, Erik van Nieukerken has found that Stigmella caryaefoliella is in fact a distinct species. (1)
