Brief Summary

Comprehensive Description

    Tineoidea
    provided by wikipedia

    Tineoidea is the ditrysian superfamily of moths that includes clothes moths, bagworms and relatives. There are six families usually included within it,[1] Eriocottidae, Arrhenophanidae, Lypusidae, Acrolophidae, Tineidae and Psychidae, whose relationships are currently uncertain.

    The Lypusidae, for example, might belong to the Gelechioidea.[2]

    Some authors merge the Tineoidea and all or part of the Gracillarioidea; in this case the Tineoidea sensu stricto are downranked to a series Tineiformes.
