Two manuscript names, attributed to Constant, were made available by Walsingham: Nepticula ilicella Walsingham, 1891 is hereby synonymized with Stigmella suberivora (Stainton, 1869); a lectotype is selected. N. suberoidella Walsingham, 1891 has previously been synonymized with Coptotriche angusticolella (Duponchel, 1843); a lectotype is selected here. A misidentified paralectotype of N. ilicella was identified as Stigmella ilicifoliella (Mender, 1918).
