The Lecithoceridae, or long-horned moths, are a family of small moths described by Simon Le Marchand in 1947. Although lecithocerids are found throughout the world, the great majority are found in the Indomalaya ecozone
Indomalaya ecozone
and the southern part of the Palaearctic
Palaearctic
ecozone. Systematics[edit] The Lecithoceridae
Lecithoceridae
belong to the superfamily Gelechioidea, and comprises over 100 genera and nearly 900 species. The family is divided into these subfamilies:

Lecithocerinae Torodorinae Gozmány in Amsel et al., 1978 Ceuthomadarinae Gozmány, 1978

Park (2015)[2] recently proposed another subfamily Crocanthinae, mainly based on Crocanthes Meyrick. The new subfamily include Crocanthes Meyrick, Aprosesta Turner, st. rev. (which is resurrected as a valid genus), Lamprista Park, Pacificulla Park, Hannara Park, and Gonaepa Walker. Unplaced to subfamily[edit]

Crocanthes group

Crocanthes Meyrick, 1886 Cophomantella T. B. Fletcher, 1940 Hannara Park in Park & Lee, 2013 Pacificulla Park in Park & Lee, 2013 Lamprista Park & Lee, 2013

Martyringa group

Martyringa Busck, 1902
