Abstract

Tischeria urticicolella (Ghesquière, 1940) – a poorly studied species from the Democratic Republic of Congo and formerly known as a member of the Gracillariidae – is redescribed and reported as belonging to the Tischeriidae for the first time. The external features and male genitalia are figured and described. A checklist and distribution map for all 18 Tischeriidae species currently recorded from Africa (including the Canary Islands) are given.
