Alucitidae - Uncovering Gondwana

Alucitidae (many-plumed moths), though a very small family, are the most diverse of the two families thought to currently comprise the Alucitoidea superfamily. The apparently solid-appearing wings actually consist of six separate, narrow, membrane strips around the major veins — hence the name “many-plumed moths). They are active at night and attracted to lights. Six species are known from Australia.
