Lampronia rupellaOlle Pellmyr
Depicted in Razowski (1978). Wingspan 13-17 mm. Head rusty yellow. Forewing dark brown with purplish sheen and four pale yellow spots; a dorsal spot near the base at a positive angle, one at tornus, and two on the costa inside and outside tornal spot, respectively.
Larva is said to feed on Adenostyles (Asteraceae) in the Alps, but this record is highly suspect. The adult appears in early summer.
