Explanation of Names
Myelopsis minutulella (Hulst, 1887) is restored as the valid name. This species was erroneously listed in the Hodges 1983 Checklist as "5719 minutularia (Hulst, 1887)" with "minutulella (Hulst, 1890)" as a synonym. Originally described as "minutularia" the spelling was changed to "minutulella" on the corrections page of same work.
