Moved to Cochylis temerana
Moved from Cochylini.

Tentative ID based on similarity to images at MPG and BOLD.

I Agree
I can't find a good match but I think it makes sense to place it in Cochylini for now.

Cochylis temerana?
Steve, do you think this is a match?

Close Enough For Me
As far as I'm concerned all ID's in Cochylini are tentative unless the specimen is dissected or DNA tested. (Given my understanding of the state of this group, I'm not even sure dissection or DNA is reliable.)

I favor tentative moves to no moves because I find it's easier to reorganize, when new information comes in, if similar specimens are together. It also makes it easier to ID new images for me at least. That might not be the best approach and I'll go with whatever others think is best.

Moved from Tortricid Moths.
