Abstract:Coleophora colutella (F.) is reported for the first time in North America based on collections from Cape Cod, MA. This immigrant casebearer, whose larvae feed on the leaves of crownvetch (Coronilla varia L.), presumably was introduced with European plant material. Diagnostic characters and illustrations of the adult and larval case are given, a table comparing C. colutella with other similar Nearctic species is provided, and its biology in Europe and North America is summarized.
