Argyresthia brockeella  (Hübner, 1813) T.L. 

Argyresthia goedartella has a gold head and thorax and the central bars on the forewing do not usually connect with the rear bars. T.R and B.R.

There are gold winged forms of both these species although rare in A.brockeella. In some of these the bars are still visible and can be used for ID. The white head of A.brockeella may also still be present. B.L.
