Depressariidae is a family of moths. It has formerly been treated as a subfamily of Gelechiidae, but is now recognised as a separate family, comprising about 2,300 species worldwide. [1]

Subfamilies

Depressariidae consists of ten subfamilies:

Gelechioidea Superfamily of moths

Gelechioidea is the superfamily of moths that contains the case-bearers, twirler moths, and relatives, also simply called curved-horn moths or gelechioid moths. It is a large and poorly understood '"micromoth" superfamily, constituting one of the basal lineages of the Ditrysia.

Ethmiinae Subfamily of moths

The Ethmiinae are a subfamily of small moths in the superfamily Gelechioidea sometimes included in the Elachistidae or the Oecophoridae, but mostly in the Depressariidae as a subfamily Ethmiinae.

<i>Ethmia quadrillella</i> Species of moth

Ethmia quadrillella is a moth belonging to the family Depressariidae, subfamily Ethmiinae.

Depressariinae Subfamily of moths

The Depressariinae – sometimes spelled "Depressiinae" in error – are a subfamily of moths in the superfamily Gelechioidea. Like their relatives therein, their exact relationships are not yet very well resolved. It has been considered part of family Elachistidae sensu lato or included in an expanded Oecophoridae. In modern classifications they are treated as the distinct gelechioid family Depressariidae.

The Cryptolechiinae are a subfamily of small moths in the family Depressariidae.

Chimabachinae Subfamily of moths

Chimabachinae, the chimabachid moths, is a subfamily of moths in the family Lypusidae. The subfamily used to be classified as a subfamily of Oecophoridae, but current phylogenetic research classifies it as a subfamily of Lypusidae. Some authors placed it as the subfamily Cryptolechiinae in the family Depressariidae. The subfamily is distributed in the Palearctic realm, ranging from Europe to Japan, although the blueberry leafroller has been introduced to North America.

The Peleopodinae are a subfamily of small moths in the family Depressariidae.

<i>Pseudatemelia</i> Genus of moths

Pseudatemelia is a genus of gelechioid moths.

Cacochroa is a moth genus of the superfamily Gelechioidea.

Telechrysis is a genus of gelechioid moths and only genus in the Telechrysidini tribe. The genus itself contains only one species, Telechrysis tripuncta, which is found in most of Europe, except the Iberian Peninsula, the Benelux, Ireland, Lithuania, Croatia, Austria and Greece.

<i>Anchinia</i> Genus of moths

Anchinia is a genus of gelechioid moths.

<i>Hypercallia</i> Genus of moths

Hypercallia is a genus of gelechioid moths.

Fuchsia is a genus of gelechioid moths and only genus of the Fuchsiini tribe. In some systematic layouts, it is placed in the subfamily Amphisbatinae of the concealer moth family (Oecophoridae). Delimitation of Amphisbatinae versus the closely related Depressariidae and Oecophorinae is a major problem of Gelechioidea taxonomy and systematics, and most authors separate the former two as full-blown families, and/or include the Amphisbatinae in Depressariidae, or merge them in the Oecophorinae outright.

<i>Cerconota</i> Genus of moths

Cerconota is a genus of moths in the family Depressariidae. In 1991, I. W. B. Nye and David Stephen Fletcher included it in the family Oecophoridae and the subfamily Stenomatinae. It was later placed in the family Elachistidae and subfamily Stenomatinae by Ronald W. Hodges, in Niels Peder Kristensen (1999). Other classifications placed them in the Elachistidae or Oecophoridae, but they actually seem to belong to the Depressariidae.

Acria is a moth genus of the superfamily Gelechioidea. It is placed in the family Depressariidae, which is often – particularly in older treatments – considered a subfamily of Oecophoridae or included in the Elachistidae.

The Hypercalliinae are a subfamily of small moths in the family Depressariidae.

The Hypertrophinae are a subfamily of small moths in the family Depressariidae. The subfamily was described by Thomas Bainbrigge Fletcher in 1929.

The Oditinae are a subfamily of small moths in the family Depressariidae.

Stenomatinae Subfamily of small moths

The Stenomatinae are a subfamily of small moths in the family Depressariidae.
