Molecular diagnostics of economically important clearwing moths
The wings of the Lepidopteran family, Sesiidae, have very few scales, which leave the wings transparent; hence they are known as clearwing moths in the world.

The systematic position of this family is uncertain and at times, it has been placed in various superfamilies including Noctuoidea (indicating a supposed relationship with Noctuidae) and in the micro-moth superfamily Yponomeutoidea (underscoring a possible link with the clearwing moths
, family Sesiidae).
Plume moths are released onto horehound infestations as pupae and clearwing moths are released as eggs attached to toothpicks which are inserted into the plant's stems.
A second, the horehound clearwing moth, was imported in 1996.
The clearwing moth complements this approach by feeding as larvae on growing tissue in the roots and stems, decreasing the flow of water and nutrients.
