Caloptilia populetorum is "separated externally by the almost unicolorous pale tarsal segments in the fore- and mid-leg (dark and more clearly ringed in suberinella)." (2)
Caloptilia strictella is poorly studied and the true identity is questioned in Landry et al. (2013:18) (2). Specimens of this species at the CNC and BOLD may actually refer to Caloptilia populetorum (Zeller, 1839).
