Catalogue
of the Lepidoptera of Belgium


Nepticulidae

The Nepticulidae, cosmopolitan in distribution, comprise about 700 described species but probably many undescribed (van Nieukerken 1986, 1997 pers. comm.). They include the smallest Lepidoptera with an average wing span of 5-6 mm, in some species it is under 4 mm. The larvae of most species mine leaves (Scoble 1992: 219).
