We present a preliminary molecular phylogenetic analysis of the Gracillarioidea based on 8.6 kb from 8 genes and 30+ taxa. Results from parsimony and maximum likelihood will be discussed. Previous hypotheses of relationships based on morphological evidence will be compared to our molecular results. The primary focus will be on deep level relationships within the superfamily, mainly of the Bucculatricidae, Douglasiidae, Gracillariidae, Roeslerstammiidae, and subfamilies of Gracillariidae. These are the preliminary results of a project on Gracillarioidea phylogeny including many additional taxa and genes.
