The Cochylini are a tribe of tortrix moths. It used to be classified as the subfamily Cochylinae.

Contents

Diversity

The tribe contains about 1,000 described species in about 80 genera.

Distribution

Members of the tribe are present worldwide, but the greatest number of species occurs in the Holarctic realm and Neotropical realm.

Biology

Larvae are mostly internal feeders in seeds, stalks and roots. [1]

Taxonomy

Research by Regier et al. in 2012 provided fairly convincing evidence that Cochylini are a monophyletic lineage within a broader Euliini. If this is accepted, Cochylini should be treated as subtribe Cochylina of Euliini.
