This article attempts to shed light on some nomenclatorial problems in Ectoedemia. Since the monograph "The microlepidopteran genus Ectoedemia Busck (Nepticulidae) in North America" was written, approximately five hundred additional specimens have been made available which have provided new species and elucidated other information given here. Four problematic species are discussed, four new species are described and five significant specimens are detailed.
