A molecular analysis of the Gelechiidae (Lepidoptera, Gelechioidea) with an interpretative grouping of its taxaBy Karsholt, O., M. Mutanen, S. Lee, & L. Kaila
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.
