A few other discoveries on Polylepis include new, but unnamed species feeding on Polylepis pauta Hieron. in Ecuador (Stigmella species 763, S. species 764) (Figs 264, 265), or merely a documented record of leaf-mines of an unknown Nepticulidae taxon associated with Polylepis racemosa from Peru (Figs 261–263) (Stonis et al. 2016c). Unexpectedly, species feeding on Polylepis are not closely related and display great morphological diversity. They probably represent older evolutionary events rather than very recent speciation so common in the Andean fauna of Nepticulidae (Stonis et al. 2016c). Finally, although all currently published records of Polylepis -feeding Nepticulidae came from elevations ranging from 2850 to 3400 m, it is expected that these species (or other Polylepis -feeding species) may also occur at elevations above 3700 m.
