1. E. hypericifolia was collected in China, Heilongjiang in 1984 and reared from H. attenuatum (unpublished data). Details will be published elsewhere.
2. E. permira was tentatively recorded from Japan by Oku (2003), but upon checking (in 2007), the specimen appeared to be misidentified.
3. E. permira was collected in China, Heilongjiang in 1984 and reared from H. attenuatum (unpublished data). Previously the food plant of permira was unknown. Details will be published elsewhere.
4. Stigmella ruwenzoriensis was described from a montane zone (Ericaceous belt) of the Ruwenzori mountains in Uganda (above 3300 m) (Evans & Fletcher, 1958). The detailed description and original illustrations of the genitalia show the above-cited gnathos and vinculum characters and a large dorsal spine on the valva, which indicate the present new combination and its place in this group. Its relation to European Fomoria was, in fact, suggested in the original description. It is not clear why Diškus & Puplesis (2003) placed this species in the genus Acalyptris Meyrick, 1921. It is possible that E. ruwenzoriensis also feeds on Hypericum, because tree-forming Hypericum species occur commonly in the higher montane zones, such as the Ericaceous belt or Hagenia-Hypericum zone (Livingstone, 1967).
5. E. variicapitella was described from Gran Canaria, Tafira. Many authors cite the occurrence in North Africa (Morocco, Mauritania) in addition to the Canaries. This is an error, accidentally introduced by Hering (1927) and repeated by various authors, possibly because the toponym Tafira also occurs in Morocco. The moth is undoubtedly a Canarian endemic.
