Argyresthia goedartella  (Linnaeus, 1758)  T.L. and B.L.

Argyresthia brockeella has a white head and thorax, darker bars, and the central bars on the forewing connect with the rear bars. T.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.R.
