Remarks
Note from Christer Hansson to Charley Eiseman, 6/13/2013: "Achrysocharoides is a very interesting genus that is insufficiently known in North America. Even though there is a rather modern key available, many species are not possible to identify because they are not described. There are probably two undescribed species in your material, maybe three [images of these species are stored at genus level on BugGuide]. Achrysocharoides is better known in Europe (than in North America) and is a genus with very narrow host ranges - the species are confined to Phyllonorycter and each species parasitizes their host on a very limited range of plants - usually a genus or closely related genera. In North America much remains to be discovered about this group!"
