          Abstract

          Bankesia desplatsella Nel, 1999, is recorded here as new to the Italian fauna from specimens collected in the Calabria and Abruzzi regions. We provide the first description of the larval case, putatively belonging to this species, add details to our knowledge of the species’ ecology, and analyse DNA barcodes of specimens from central and southern Italy. The female remains unknown.

          DNA barcodes for insects.

          DNA barcoding refers to the technique of sequencing a short fragment of the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) gene, the "DNA barcode," from a taxonomically unknown specimen and performing comparisons with a reference library of barcodes of known species origin to establish a species-level identification. The library barcodes gain their value due to an intimate association-through the vouchered specimens from where they came-with other data; particularly Linnaean names, collection localities, and morphology in the form of digital images. Consequently, this chapter details means of efficiently obtaining barcodes along two general streams: rapid barcode assembly to populate the library and retrieval of barcodes from highly prized specimens, but also emphasizes organization and collection of the barcode collaterals.
