Abstract

To verify the presence in Italy of Delplanqueia inscriptella, today accepted as a separate species from D. dilutella, we carried out the study of the historical collections of Carlo Prola and Federico Hartig and new material that was recently collected in central Italy. Both species are present in continental Italy and Sicily while only D. inscriptella in Sardinia. The bibliographic reconstruction and the examination of the Hartig’s specimens that revealed the presence of Delplanqueia cortella, for a long time considered a corso-sardinian endemism, is not reflected: the specimens in Hartig’s collection with P. cortella placement are indeed Pempeliella matilella.
