Acleris comariana (Lienig & Zeller, 1846) Species

Last modified: April 23, 2021, 12:16 p.m.

The status of this species in Belgium is insufficiently known because of its similarity to Acleris laterana and therefore it is best to check the genitalia. The current distribution (after 2004) is based only on individuals that have been checked for genitalia.
Based on studies of the genitals, this species is much rarer than the more common Acleris laterana.
