European Alabonia

I can't remember the difference between Alabonia geofrella and Alabonia staintonella, but both species are pretty similar. I know staintonella occurs in Slovenia so is probably in Italy too.

Not staintonella

Having now checked, I think that in staintonella the dorsal and costal triangles would be joined, so this is indeed geofrella.
