Holcopogoninae (but see text)

The Holcopogonidae are a family of moths. They belong to the huge the superfamily Gelechioidea, of which they represent a minor but apparently quite distinct lineage.[1]

They sometimes include the subfamily Autostichinae from the concealer moth family (Oecophoridae). In this case, the combined group's name is the senior synonym Autostichidae, and the present group becomes its subfamily Holcopogoninae.[1]


This family contains about 10 genera:[1]
