The family is cosmopolitan in distribution, but the homogeneous genus Coleophora, in which about 1,000 species are described, occurs mainly in the Holarctic region. The family, as a whole contains 1,386 species (van Nieukerken E. J., Kaila L., Kitching I. J., Kristensen N. P. (...) Yakovlev R. V., Zolotuhin V. V. & Zwick A. 2011: 215). Second instar larvae construct cases from which they mine leaves or eat seeds.
