The dataset contains 11 records of moth specimens (Lepidoptera, Depressariidae) collected from 1988 to 2016 in seven South European and North African countries. The study of these specimens resulted in the description of a new genus, Rosetea Corley & Ferreira, 2019. The new genus contains two species previously placed in the genus Cacochroa Heinemann, 1870, Rosetea corfuella (Lvovsky, 2000) and R. rosetella (Corley, 2018), but also a new species, R. sara Corley & Ferreira, 2019, described based on differences found in the male and female genitalia and on DNA barcodes in Corley et al. (2019). Captured specimens were identified to species level and preserved in 96% ethanol, with one exception kept in dry storage. A tissue sample, one leg, was collected from each individual, from which DNA was extracted. The DNA barcoding of these specimens was conducted within the InBIO Barcoding Initiative (IBI), funded by EnvMetaGen and PORBIOTA projects. DNA barcode sequences were deposited in BOLD (Barcode of Life Data System) online database. DNA extracts are deposited in the IBI collection at the CIBIO (Research Center in Biodiversity and Genetic Resources).
