Lecithoceridae

provided by wikipedia EN

The Lecithoceridae, or long-horned moths, are a family of small moths described by Simon Le Marchand in 1947. Although lecithocerids are found throughout the world, the great majority are found in the Indomalaya ecozone and the southern part of the Palaearctic ecozone.

Systematics

The Lecithoceridae belong to the superfamily Gelechioidea, and comprises over 100 genera and nearly 900 species. The family is divided into these subfamilies:

Park (2015)[2] recently proposed another subfamily Crocanthinae, mainly based on Crocanthes Meyrick. The new subfamily include Crocanthes Meyrick, Aprosesta Turner, st. rev. (which is resurrected as a valid genus), Lamprista Park, Pacificulla Park, Hannara Park, and Gonaepa Walker.
