Identification by Jean-Fran├žois Landry from this plate.

Moved from Asaphocrita busckiella. Refer to Dr. Landry's remark here regarding these species. I am curating Blastobasinae on BugGuide based on my interpretation of the specimens on BOLD, according to which this can be placed here instead. Note that DNA reveals that both aphidiella and busckiella are complexes of several species.
