Small (approximately 15 mm wingspan) moths with the moderately narrow wings that are typical of most other gelechiid moths. Th is subfamily is defined by the structure of the internal apodemes connecting the abdomen to the thorax, as well as by larval and pupal characters. Th e larvae are internal feeders in seeds and seed pods.
The approximately 110 species of Pexicopiinae known worldwide are primarily pantropical in distribution. Four species occur in North America, one of which, a pest of grain in the field and in storage, is reported from AB. Th ere are no recent taxonomic works on this group.

Small (12–18 mm wingspan) moths with moderately slender forewings, broadest near the tip and with a predominantly straight costal margin. Th e hindwings are broader than the forewings and are not or are only scarcely sinuate near the tip, unlike other gelechiids. Th e larvae are leaftiers.
Approximately 1000 species of Dichomeridinae are known worldwide, from all areas except New Zealand and Hawaii. Eighty-four species occur in North America, 10 of which are reported from AB. Th is subfamily is very well known in North America thanks to the revision by Hodges (1986).

33. Limacodidae – slug caterpillar moths
Small (12–30 mm wingspan) fuzzy moths with short stout wings. Larvae have abdominal prolegs highly reduced or absent, and move in a manner similar to slugs. Some larvae have urticating hairs. Th ey are external feeders on shrubs and trees, often resting on the undersides of leaves.
Approximately 1000 species of Limacodidae have been described globally. Fortynine species are known from North America, one of which is known from AB. The family is in need of revision, as no taxonomic works have been published since the original descriptions of species, most of which appeared more than 100 years ago. Th e sole species reported from AB was illustrated by Covell (1984) and Powell and Opler (2009).
