10. Tischeriidae  – trumpet leafminer moths

Minute (5–11 mm wingspan) moths with narrow wings of variable coloration. Larvae are leafminers, forming blotch or trumpet-shaped mines.

Approximately 114 species of Tischeriidae  are known worldwide. Th ey occur in all parts of the world except Australasia. Forty-seven species are known to occur in North America; one species is known in AB. The North American Tischeriidae  were revised by Braun (1972); no new species have been described since then, but Puplesis and Diskus (2003) cataloged the world fauna and made many changes in combination.
