Abstract: 

The superfamily Yponomeutoidea consists of relatively primitive micro-moths and is divided into eight families. The Yponomeutidae is an heterogeneous group including both external and internal feeders, sometimes very different in morphological aspect. Following this dissimilarity, the family is divided into six subfamilies. The members of the subfamily Yponomeutinae are relatively small in size and have dull coloured wings. The number of known species exceeds 360 placed in 24 genera (Dugdale et al., 1998). The distribution is worldwide. However, most of the species inhabits Palaearctic region, except for the northern tundra and the desert. The entire species are phytophagous, trophically associated predominantly with trees and shrubs, and because of the wide variety of food plants, the local adaptation ofthese moths is rather diverse (Gershenson & Ulenberg, 1998).
The Yponomeutinae of Iran has been neglected slightly and few literature records are published on them. Five species have hitherto been reported from Iran: Yponomeuta malinelIus Zeller, Y.padellus (Linnaeus), Y.rorrellus (Hubner), Zelleria impure Staudinger and Paraswammerdamia iranella Friese (Amsel, 1959; Modarres-Awal, 1997; Gershenson & Ulenberg, 1998). Nevertheless, Yponomeuta variabillis Zeller that was listed as a Yponomeutine from Iran (Modarres-Awal, 1997), is nomen nodum for Y. padellus (Gershenson & Ulenberg, 1998).
