The dataset contains one record of the species Cochylimorpha punctiferana (Ragonot, 1881) (Lepidoptera, Tortricidae) collected in continental Portugal in 2016.The study of this specimen resulted in the resurrection of the Portuguese endemic species C. punctiferana from synonymy with C. discopunctana (Eversmann, 1844) based on clear differences in female genitalia and DNA barcode by Corley et al. (2020). A tissue sample, one leg, was removed to be used for DNA extraction. Sequencing of the 658 bp COI DNA barcode was conducted within the InBIO Barcoding Initiative (IBI) and the DNA sequence was submitted to BOLD (Barcode of Life Data System) and GenBank databases. The preserved specimen and DNA extract are deposited in the IBI collection at the CIBIO (Research Center in Biodiversity and Genetic Resources).
