Incurvariidae

provided by wikipedia EN

Incurvariidae is a family of small primitive monotrysian moths in the order Lepidoptera. There are twelve genera recognised (Davis, 1999). Many species are leaf miners[2] and much is known of their host plants, excluding Paraclemensia acerifoliella.[3] The most familiar species in Europe are perhaps Incurvaria masculella[4] and Phylloporia bistrigella.[5] The narrow wings are held tightly along the body at rest and some species have very long antennae.
