Gracillariinae 1   Gracillariinae 2

The adults are typical of the Gracillariidae in that they have narrow wings and a distinct head up resting posture supported by the long legs.

The larvae generally mine leaves for the first two instars. They then feed externally, usually in a rolled leaf segment.
