Attevidae is a family of moths of the Yponomeutoidea superfamily,[1] containing only one genus, Atteva. The group has a pantropical distribution; however, the range of at least one species, Atteva aurea, extends into the temperate zone. No consistent hypotheses regarding the relationships, placement, and ranking of Attevidae have been published, but the prevalent view is that they likely form a monophyletic group within the Yponomeutoidea.[2]
