''Tineola bisselliella'', known as the common clothes moth, webbing clothes moth, or simply clothing moth, is a species of fungus moth . It is the type species of its genus ''Tineola''. The specific name is commonly misspelled ''biselliella'' – for example by G. A. W. Herrich-Schäffer, when he established ''Tineola'' in 1853.
