Lampronia aeneella Heinemann

Olle Pellmyr
Containing group: Lampronia

A Phylogenetic Red Flag

If intermediella is indeed misplaced, then aeneella should probably be moved as well.

Adult Characteristics

Male genitalia depicted in Medvedev (1978). Wingspan 15.0 mm. Forewing shining yellowish brown, with two cream white spots on termen, including one at tornus.

Comparison with Similar Species

Said to be distinguishable from intermediella only by examination of the genitalia. In the male, cucullus is broad and with straight, flat apex (as opposed to narrow and wedge-shaped in intermediella), saccus long relative to vinculum, and with aedoeagal apex with slightly sclerotized cords.

Host, Oviposition, and Larval Feeding Habits

Not reported.

Geographic Distribution

Western Austria.


Not available to me.

This page is a Tree of Life Leaf Page.

Each ToL leaf page provides a synopsis of the characteristics of a group of organisms representing a leaf at the tip of the Tree of Life. The major distinction between a leaf and a branch of the Tree of Life is that a leaf cannot generally be further subdivided into subgroups representing distinct genetic lineages.

For a more detailed explanation of the different ToL page types, have a look at the Structure of the Tree of Life page.
