Moth for ID - Coleophora acamtopappi
Santee, San Diego County, California, USA
May 21, 2013
Size: Forewing length 10 mm

Found at UV light near Santee Lakes.

Moved from Coleophora.

Moved from Ypsolopha.

Identified as Coleophora acamtopappi at BOLD, Sample ID: CNCLEP00112313, BIN: BOLD:AAA9815.

for finding these on BOLD. I sent a bunch of them to Landry and was not aware that he submitted them for the barcoding. Another one for updating at MPG.

Well now
I wondered how they all got there as I was pretty sure you stopped submitting to BOLD. Looks like you have at least 10 specimens in that BIN. Were there more you sent him?

I included
a variety of Coleophora. It seems likely that they are now scattered about BOLD.

Moved from Moths.

Seeking some help on this beauty.
