This paper describes 10 newly recorded species of Yponomeutoid moth from Israel (Families: Argyresthiidae, Plutellidae, andYponomeutidae). Family Argyresthiidae and its two genera (Ocnerostomaand Argyresthia) have not been recorded in Israel previously. The newly recorded species are: Ocnerostoma friesei Svensson, 1966, Ypsolopha trichonella (Mann, 1861), Y. parenthesella (Linnaeus, 1761), Y. sequella(Clerck, 1759), Y. sylvella (Linnaeus, 1767), Y. scabrella(Linnaeus, 1761), Argyresthia curvella (Linnaeus, 1761), A. brockeella(H?bner, 1913), A. pruniella (Clerck, 1759) and A. goedartella (Linnaeus, 1758). There are 25 species known of Yponomeutoid moths in Israel, with new records to be expected in the future.
