Zelleria cynetica Meyrick, 1892 (Yponomeutidae)
Zelleria cynetica Meyrick, 1892 (Yponomeutidae, Yponomeutinae). The Yponomeutidae comprise 32 genera and 297 species worldwide with about 20 percent occurring in Australia. A recent study indicated family members are extremely conservative with respect to larval hosts with 96% restricted to a single plant order and most of these used only one plant family. Thus family members have served as model organisms for studying how insect-plant interactions have affected plant evolution.
