- A family of tineid moths having long slender bodies, small wings, long antennæ and 3-jointed palpi. It contains the important genera Coriscium and Ornix besides Gracilaria, which are rich in species and wide-spread. The larvæ are all leaf-miners when young, but quit their mines before pupating, usually rolling the edge of the leaf around the cocoon.
