Depressariidae is a family of moths. It was formerly treated as a subfamily of Gelechiidae, but is now recognised as a separate family, comprising about 2,300 species worldwide.[1]


Depressariidae consists of ten subfamilies:[1]

A number of genera, including Carcina, Gonionota, Machimia, Himmacia (sensu stricto), and Psilocorsis, are not placed in a subfamily.[1]
