Titanoceros cataxantha is a species of snout moth described by Edward Meyrick in 1884. It is found in Australia.
The larvae feed on Eucalyptus species.
The Gelechiidae are a family of moths commonly referred to as twirler moths or gelechiid moths. They are the namesake family of the huge and little-studied superfamily Gelechioidea, and the family's taxonomy has been subject to considerable dispute. These are generally very small moths with narrow, fringed wings. The larvae of most species feed internally on various parts of their host plants, sometimes causing galls. Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga) is a host plant common to many species of the family, particularly of the genus Chionodes, which as a result is more diverse in North America than usual for Gelechioidea.
Batrachedra is the largest genus in the moth family Batrachedridae, with representatives all over the world. The early stages of most species are unknown. The genus name is derived from the Greek words batrachos, 'frog', and edra, 'seat', referring to the frog-like resting posture of the adult moths. As of 2018 at least some 114 species are known to belong to the genus.
Spilomelinae is a very species-rich subfamily of the lepidopteran family Crambidae, the crambid snout moths. With 4,132 described species in 340 genera worldwide, it is the most speciose group among pyraloids.
Urodidae or "false burnet moths" is a family of moths in the lepidopteran order, representing its own superfamily, Urodoidea, with three genera, one of which, Wockia, occurs in Europe.
Delexocha is a monotypic moth genus in the family Oecophoridae erected by Ian Francis Bell Common in 1997. Its only species, Delexocha ochrocausta, was first described by Edward Meyrick in 1884. It is found in Australian in Queensland, New South Wales, the Australian Capital Territory and Victoria.
Idaea halmaea, the two-spotted wave, is a moth of the family Geometridae. The species was first described by Edward Meyrick in 1888. It is found in Australia, including Tasmania.
Eudonia aphrodes is a species of moth of the family Crambidae described by Edward Meyrick in 1884. It is found in Australia, where it has been recorded from New South Wales.
Proternia is a monotypic moth genus of the family Crambidae described by Edward Meyrick in 1884. Its only species, Proternia philocapna, described by the same author in the same year, is endemic to New Zealand.
Tetracona is a genus of snout moths in the subfamily Spilomelinae of the family Crambidae. The genus was described by Edward Meyrick in 1884 with Aediodes amathealisWalker, 1859 as type species.
Epicyme is a monotypic moth genus in the family Geometridae described by Edward Meyrick in 1885. Its only species, Epicyme rubropunctaria, the red-spotted delicate, described by Edward Doubleday in 1843, is found in New Zealand, the Australian Capital Territory, Tasmania and Victoria.
Borkhausenia is a genus of the concealer moth family (Oecophoridae) described by Jacob Hübner in 1825. Among these, it belongs to subfamily Oecophorinae, wherein it is probably closely related to Hofmannophila. In the past, several other Oecophoridae have been included in Borkhausenia, as well as a few even more distant members of the superfamily Gelechioidea. Metalampra was originally described as a subgenus of Borkhausenia. Telechrysis has also been included here as a subgenus by some, while other authors have considered it a separate genus in the Oecophorinae or – if these are also considered distinct – the Amphisbatinae.
Elachista is a genus of gelechioid moths described by Georg Friedrich Treitschke in 1833. It is the type genus of the grass-miner moth family (Elachistidae). This family is sometimes circumscribed very loosely, including for example the Agonoxenidae and Ethmiidae which seem to be quite distinct among the Gelechioidea, as well as other lineages which are widely held to be closer to Oecophora than to Elachista and are thus placed in the concealer moth family Oecophoridae here.
The Epipaschiinae are a subfamily of snout moths. Almost 600 species are known today, which are found mainly in the tropics and subtropics. Some occur in temperate regions, but the subfamily is apparently completely absent from Europe, at least as native species. A few Epipaschiinae are crop pests that may occasionally become economically significant.
Astrapometis is a monotypic snout moth genus described by Edward Meyrick in 1884. It contains the species Astrapometis saburalis described by Francis Walker in 1859. It is found in Australia.
Autosticha is a genus of gelechioid moths. It belongs to the subfamily Autostichinae, which is either placed in the concealer moth family (Oecophoridae), or in an expanded Autostichidae. It is the type genus of its subfamily. Originally, this genus was named Automola, but this name properly refers to a fly genus in family Richardiidae.
Cardamyla hercophora is a species of snout moth in the genus Cardamyla. It was described by Edward Meyrick in 1884. It is found in Australia.
Titanoceros heliodryas is a species of snout moth described by Edward Meyrick in 1933. It is found in Australia.
Titanoceros thermoptera is a species of snout moth described by Oswald Bertram Lower in 1903. It is found in Australia.
Pyrausta comastis is a moth in the family Crambidae. This species is endemic to New Zealand. It has been classified as "nationally vulnerable" by the Department of Conservation.
Glycythyma chrysorycta is a moth in the family Crambidae. It was described by Edward Meyrick in 1884. It is found in India, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Japan, Korea, China, Taiwan and Australia, where it has been recorded from Queensland.
