Catalogue
of the Lepidoptera of Belgium


Coleophoridae

The family is cosmopolitan in distribution, but the homogeneous genus Coleophora, in which about 1000 species are described, occurs mainly in the Holarctic region. Second instar larvae construct cases from which they mine leaves or eat seeds (Scoble 1992: 247).
Identification: Barasch 1934, Benander 1938, 1939, Capuse 1973, Emmet et al. 1996, Gozmány 1956, Hackman 1945, Patzak 1974, Toll 1953, 1962, Razowski 1990.
