The Coleophoridae are a family of small moths, belonging to the superfamily Gelechioidea.
Represented in all continents, most are found in the temperate zones of the northern hemisphere.
So common in Palearctic, and rare in sub-Saharan Africa, in South America and Australia, it is very likely that they are original
(as most or all of the other families Gelechioidea) in northern Eurasia. These "microfalene" are generally with slight build.
The larvae initially feed inside the leaves, flowers or seeds of their host plants. When they emerge to feed externally,
usually they construct a protective case of silk. Because of greatly reduced size they are very difficult to categorize,
if not by microscopy, therefore on this page you will find mostly just indication but not the secure definition of the kind.
