3.1. Etymologie (Namenserklärung)

Pinzari & Pinzari (2020: 584) teilen mit: “The name of the new species derives from aenigma (mystery in Latin). The male, previously determined as H. vulneratella var. roseostrigella, after the clarifying work of Gastón et al. (2016) had remained enigmatic for a long time. Despite the research carried out since then in the same places, we have not been able to find other specimens and therefore, based on the clarity of the characters and biogeographical characteristics of the genus in Italy, we decided to describe the new species without delaying further.”

3.2. Taxonomie

Die Art wurde nach einem einzelnen Männchen beschrieben. Auf Barcoding wurde dabei verzichtet. Es bleiben also noch Fragen offen, auch solche bezüglich der Artberechtigung. In ihrer Schlussfassung notieren Pinzari & Pinzari (2020: 586) : "The new species Hypsotropa aenigmatica Pinzari & Pinzari, sp. n. differs from the three similar and congeneric species, H. roseostrigella, H. vulneratella and H. vazquezi in having all together the specific and distinctive characteristics of these three species. In particular, the male of Hypsotropa aenigmatica, the only known specimen, has similar habitus of H. roseostrigella, i. e. it has the three bands of pink-purple scales that go longitudinally through the forewings, from the base to the outer edge, and it has the genitals with the valve of H. vulneratella and the gnathos of H. vazquezi."
