The Gracillariidae is one the largest families of primitive moths (Lepidoptera). Gracillariid moths are generally distributed throughout the world except Antarctica, and they are more numerous in tropical areas. Many species of Gracillariidae are serious pests of agricultural and ornamental plants. The Global Taxonomic Database of Gracillariidae currently holds information on 147 genus-group names and in total 2.683 species-group names, belonging to 105 genera.
The data in this checklist resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 2,831 records.
1 extension data tables also exist. An extension record supplies extra information about a core record. The number of records in each extension data table is illustrated below.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
