D602
Do you have any photos associated with D602? I don't seem to have taken any when the leaves first arrived, and I'm wondering if it's safe to say the larvae started out as leafminers (I believe they did, but I have no proof). The adults from that collection look like they might be R. finitimana:

 
I just posted two--added them
I just posted two--added them to this post. What about the species on Ilex opaca and I. vomitoria (from St. Andrews--not reared successfully yet)? Could that be the same, or is that more likely to be R. dietziana?

 
They could be either
These two species seem to have identical habits, and they probably overlap in hosts, although so far R. dietziana is the only one that has been reared from an evergreen holly (I. glabra). I'll move those up to genus level.
