Moths Plutellidae are part of the superfamily Yponomeutoidea.
They are present in all continents (Arctic and Antarctica excluded). The typical members of this family are relatively smaller and more slender than
belonging to the family Ypsolopha (wingspan 1.2 to 1.5 cm), and most feed on plants of the Brassicaceae family (cabbage).
The pupation takes place in cocoons.
