3467 - Cydia nigricana (Fabricius 1794)
... if treated as a distinct species, Cydia rusticella (Clerk, 1759) would be 3467.1. It is treated as a synonym of C. nigricana in Brown et al., 2005, World Checklist of Moths (Tortridae). The reason for this is somewhat technical. The name Cydia rusticella has been "suppressed" by a ruling of the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature. As such, it should no longer be used in scientific literature (except as a synonym). One would have to read the official ruling to determine why the action was taken, but it is often done to conserve a name long in use (when an older name is discovered) and to avoid confusion in the literature. Cydia rusticella is now an invalid name.
