Identification
Remarks
Four species (3365 - Anclyis spiraeifoliana, 3367 - A. burgessiana, 3366 - A. laciniana and 3369 - A. fuscociliana) cannot be distinguished by current understanding of genitalia, larval hosts or phenotypic variation (see comment by Bob Patterson). According to Jason Dombroskie, individuals often fit a phenotype that matches one of the existing names, but some are intermediate and are best identified as "Ancylis spiraefoliana complex."
