Similar species: 0844 Syncopacma larseniella and 0847 Syncopacma taeniolella.
Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: Records have been confused with those of S. larseniella (Gozmany q.v.), there are unconfirmed records from a number of localities in vice-counties 61 to 63. There is presently only a single confirmed record of this species, which is associated with common Birdsfoot-trefoil.
Argus 63, 2011: Although there are old records under this name from VCs 61 and 63 they are unconfirmed, the more recently separated S. larseniella (Gosm.) appears to be the more widespread moth within the County. There is only one confirmed previous County record, from VC62 in 1979.
