Abstract

Records of Wockia asperipunctella (Bruand) from eastern and western Canada indicate a much wider distribution than suspected. They suggest that this European species is also native to North America and thus probably Holarctic. Variation in forewing coloration and genitalia are noted and illustrated.

De mentions canadiennes de Wockia asperipunctella (Bruand) démontrent qu'elle a une répartition néarctique beaucoup plus étendue qu'on ne soupçonnait. Ces données suggèrent que 1'espece de 1'Europe est probablement indigène au continent nord-américain et holarctique. L'auteur décrit et illustre les variations de coloration des ailes et des genitalia.
