P et seq

A large group of minute to small moths with long, narrow wings; wings with long hair fringes; antennae without an 'eye-cap'. Larvae are leaf miners, with four pairs of abdominal prolegs (prolegs absent from the sixth abdominal segment); crochets scattered but sometimes forming a lateral penellipse surrounding several larger crochets (Fig. 115b); first-instar larva apodous and very flat, with blade-like mandibles. Pupation occurs in a cocoon within the larval habitation or mine, from which the pupa protrudes following adult emergence.

EXAMPLES: Gracillariinae - Caloptilia syringella (larva = lilac leaf miner); Lithocolletinae - Phyllonorycter blancardella (apple leaf blister moth).
