46.5. Odontiinae 

Minute to small (8–25 mm wingspan) moths with triangular wings, similar superficially to species in the subfamily Pyraustinae  . No external features readily distinguish these moths from all of the other Crambinae  . Larvae feed on a variety of plants, usually in a concealed manner.

Approximately 370 species of Odontiinae  are known worldwide, from all regions. Fifty-seven species are known in North America, one of which is known in AB. The group was revised by Munroe (1972b).
