Thyrididae is the picture-winged leaf moths family of moths in the Lepidoptera order. They alone make up the Thyridoidea superfamily, which is sometimes included in the Pyraloidea (though this is not supported by cladistic analysis. Most species live in the tropics and subtropics.There are 4 subfamilies. Their biology is little known.Thyridid specimens are rare in museum collections.

The Pterophoridae or plume moths are a family of Lepidoptera with unusually modified wings. Though they belong to the Apoditrysia like the larger moths and the butterflies, unlike these they are tiny and were formerly included among the assemblage called "Microlepidoptera".
