Trachyopella opuntiae ( Richards, 1967) 

Leptocera (Trachyopella) opuntiae Richards, 1967: 531  .

Remarks

Richards (1967) originally described this species as a Trachyopella Duda, 1918 (then a subgenus of Leptocera Olivier, 1813  ), a placement that was followed by Roháček & Marshall (1986) in their review of Holarctic Trachyopella. Pitkin (1989) transferred opuntiae  to Rudolfina  , in view of its modified female cerci. Examination of type specimens, including male and female terminalia, supports the treatment of this species as a Trachyopella.
