Bucculatrix coronatella Clemens, 1860
Species-level identification of any Bucculatrix is very difficult and usually requires DNA and/or dissection to confirm. All species-level identifications on BugGuide, without expert analysis including DNA and dissection, should be considered tentative, at best. Bob Patterson is conducting a review of this genus at the Moth Photographers Group with help from Terry Harrison and other experts. Every attempt will be made on BugGuide to align our taxonomy with the MPG which may require some previously submitted images to be moved back to genus.
