Nye & Fletcher (1991) stated:-

Herrich-Schüffer attributed Carposina to Zeller and berberidella to Mann, each an incorrect authorship.
Carposina was established in the Tineidae; it was placed in the Conchylidae, now Cochylidae, by Meyrick, 1882, Entomologist's mon. Mag. 19: 69; in the Tortricidae by Rebel, 1894, Annin naturw. Mus. Wien. 9: 92; in a seperate subfamily of the Tortricidae, the Carposinae by Walsingham, 1897, Trans. ent. Soc. Lond. 1897: 59; the Carposinae was raised to family rank by Walsingham, 1907, in Sharp, Fauna hawaii. 1 (5): 654.

The Herrich-Schüffer dates are taken from Hemming, 1937, Hübner 1: 579-589.
