Genera

See text

The subfamilies of Gracillariidae differ by the adult moth resting posture.[2] Most Gracillariinae rest with the front of the body steeply raised; Lithocolletinae and Phyllocnistinae rest with the body parallel to the surface; in Lithocolletinae often with the head lowered.

GeneraEdit

Gracillariidae phylogeny has been revised in 2017(Kawahara et al. 2017)[3] and the Acrocercopinae subfamily is contains 25 genera (59 genera were affected to other subfamilies):
