COMMENTSType species: Coriscium ligustrinellum Zeller, 1839. Isis von Oken 1893(3): 210. By subsequent designation by Fletcher, 1929. Memoirs of the Department of Agriculture of India (Entomology) 11: 56. Coriscium ligustrinellum Zeller, 1839 is currently considered as a junior subjective synonym of Tinea cuculipennella Hübner, 1796. Unavailable designation of type species: Tinea cuculipennella Hübner, 1796, a nominal species only doubtfully included in Coriscium by Zeller, and not linked in synonymy with one of the originally included nominal species when designated by Meyrick, 1912, In: Wytsman, Genera Insectorum 128: 25 (Nye & Fletcher 1991: 79).
