Platyptilia emissalis

Derwentia perfoliata (R.Br.) B.G.Briggs & Ehrend., ANBG, Canberra, ACT, 22 December 2008, with pupal case of Sinpunctiptilia emissalis (Walker, 1864) (Lepidoptera: Pterophoridae) at base of leaf pair

 

This species has been known as Platyptilia omissalis Fletcher, 1926, but Arenberger has moved the species to the genus Sinpunctiptilia and synonymised it with Walker's Platyptilus emissalis.
