Tineola bisselliella, known as the Common Clothes Moth, Webbing Clothes Moth, or simply Clothing Moth, is a species of fungus moth (family Tineidae). Therein it belongs to the subfamily Tineinae. It is the type species of its genus Tineola. The specific name is commonly mis-spelled biselliella â€“ for example by G. A. W. Herrich-SchÃ¤ffer, when he established Tineola in 1853.
The caterpillars of the clothes moth are considered a serious pest, as they can derive nourishment from clothing â€“ in particular wool, but many other natural fibers â€“ and also, like most moth of its relatives, from stored produce.
