Titanoceros heliodryas is a species of snout moth described by Edward Meyrick in 1933. It is found in Australia.
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.
Hyposmocoma is a genus of moths with more 350 species endemic to the Hawaiian Islands. The genus was first described by Arthur Gardiner Butler in 1881. Most species of Hyposmocoma have plant-based diets, but four species, such as Hyposmocoma molluscivora, eat snails. The caterpillars spin silk, which they then use to capture and eat snails. These are the first caterpillars known to eat snails.
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.
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 Indomalayan realm and the southern part of the Palaearctic realm.
The Archipini are a tribe of tortrix moths. Since many genera of these are not yet assigned to tribes, the genus list presented here is provisional.
Omiodes is a moth genus in the family Crambidae. Several species are endemic to Hawaii.
Thiotricha is a genus of moths in the family Gelechiidae, subfamily Thiotrichinae.
Cyril Jonathan Meyrick is the current bishop of Lynn and former dean of Exeter.
Piletocera is a genus of moths of the family Crambidae. The genus was first described by Julius Lederer in 1863.
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.
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.
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.
Titanoceros is a genus of snout moths. It was described by Edward Meyrick in 1884.
Titanoceros cataxantha is a species of snout moth described by Edward Meyrick in 1884. 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.
Xyloryctidae is a family of moths contained within the superfamily Gelechioidea described by Edward Meyrick in 1890. Most genera are found in the Indo-Australian region. While many of these moths are tiny, some members of the family grow to a wingspan of up to 66 mm, making them giants among the micromoths.
Gracillariinae are a subfamily of moths which was described by Henry Tibbats Stainton in 1854.
Gelechiinae is a subfamily of moths in the family Gelechiidae. It was described by Henry Tibbats Stainton in 1854.
Anomologinae is a subfamily of moths in the family Gelechiidae.
