Conclusions from this paper:

"Based on our findings, and considering them against earlier classifications to make a minimum number of changes, we separate the family Gelechiidae into seven subfamilies (Physoptili- nae, Anacampsinae, Dichomeridinae, Apatetrinae, Thiotrichi- nae, Anomologinae, Gelechiinae) (Fig. 2). The Pexicopiinae is according to our data a subordinate clade (Pexicopiini) within the Apatetrinae.

For the clade consisting of Thiotricha and Macrenches we propose Thiotrichinae subfam.nov.
