Figures 1View FIGURE 1 I, 2 I

Tinea compositella Fabricius, 1775: 663  .

Type locality. England (“Habitat in Angliae nemoribus”).

Material examined. Kiel coll. 3 syntypes representing two species: 2 specimens of Grapholita compositella (Fabricius)  and 1 specimen of Grapholita  or Cydia  sp.

Identity. Grapholita compositella (Fabricius)  ( Olethreutinae  , Grapholitini  ) ( Lederer 1859).

Remarks. This is a well known and widely accepted Fabrician taxon (e.g., Brown 2005). In order to stabilize the nomenclature, the specimen shown in Fig. 1View FIGURE 1 I is herein designated as the lectotype. It is a male and the only specimen in the series with a label (“ composana  ”) in Fabricius’ handwriting ( Fig. 2View FIGURE 2 I). It is in rather poor condition, and its abdomen is missing.
