Dichomeridinae is a subfamily of moths in the Gelechiidae family.

Distribution[edit]

Almost worldwide, except the arctic and Antarctic regions.

Diversity[edit]

The subfamily formerly included three tribes, about 29 genera and about 900 species. However, a 2013 study moved the Chelariini to the Anacampsinae subfamily.
