Wikipedia Abstract

Ectoedemia canadensis is a moth of the Nepticulidae family. It is known only from the holotype (which is now lost), reared from mines on Alnus tenuifolia and collected at Rogers Pass in British Columbia, on 19 August 1915 by A. Braun. It probably occurs in adjacent Alberta as well. The wingspan is about 5.5 mm.
