Coleophora sp.

Another moth hard to identificate, I'm almost sure that the genus is Coleophora, but about the specie I can't talk.


Coleophora peribenanderi - similar

Coleophora trochilella - the color is much dark

Coleophora follicularis - similar

Coleophora striatipennella - similar

Coleophora galbulipennella - the white stripe don't fit with the subject.


All this species are available in the Nord Italy, there are a lot of other Colephora sp., so I think it's impossible to identificate the specie!

Thanks for the help! Marcello

    I agree with your shortlist of species and your comments.

    Yes, iit is impossible to make a reliable determination of the actual species without performing a genital examination (good genital photos on


    I have a similar problem with Coleophora (and other genera) here in Cyprus.
