Zelleria semitincta Meyrick, 1930 (type locality in trans-Pecos TX) appears to be a junior synonym, with male genitalia of the semitincta holotype a very good match to those of a male from LA near the type locality of ochroplagiata and quite distinct from those of the most similar described species, pyri.
