Scop., both close to T. (T.) aurella Rebel, 1933; T. (T.) baldensis sp. n. on Genista radiata close to T. (T.) immundella (Zeller, 1839), and T. (T.) trasaghica sp. n. on Corothamnus decumbens (Durande) Spach similar to T. (T.) pallidella (Duponchel, 1843), but more close to T. (T.) beirnei Puplesis, 1984 and T. (T.) squamatella Stainton, 1849.
