Remarks
T. Harrison says these are either Caloptilia umbratella or the Ribes feeder; he has confirmed via dissection that the two are different species. He adds: "I would suggest establishing a page for Caloptilia umbratella, because it is a named species with a Hodges checklist number, and mentioning on that page that there is an externally indistinguishable species that feeds on Ribes."

The genitalia images here are all of umbratella.
