Catocalini

The Catocalini are a tribe of moths in the Erebidae family.[1][2] Adults of many species in the tribe are called underwing moths due to their vividly colored hindwings that are often covered by contrastingly dark, drab forewings.

Taxonomy[edit]

The tribe is most closely related to the Audeini tribe, also within the Erebinae.[1]

Genera[edit]

Catocalinae

For the Catocalinae as a subfamily of Erebidae, see Catocalini.

Catocalinae is a subfamily of noctuoid moths, placed in family Noctuidae. In the alternative arrangement, where Noctuidae are reduced to the core group around the Noctuinae, the present lineage is abolished, the upranked Catocalini being merged with the Erebini and becoming a subfamily of the reestablished family Erebidae.[1]

Many of the species are large (7 to 10 cm, 3 to 4 inches) compared to other noctuids in temperate zones, and have brightly colored backwings.

The closely related Ophiderinae and Calpinae are sometimes merged into this group.

Genera

The Catocalinae genera are usually assigned to the tribes Tytini, Armadini and Erebini, which have a fairly small number of genera, and the much larger Catocalini. The Poaphilini are another proposed tribe around the genus Argyrostrotis (= Poaphila), but is is here considered to be paraphyletic. In addition, a high proportion of genera is not at present assigned to a specific tribe as their relationships require further study. These genera incertae sedis are:[2]

In addition, some little-known noctuoid moth species which somewhat differ from the bulk of their supposed genera might actually belong here:[2]

Placement of Xenogenes in the Catocalinae is in error; it is actually a geometer moth (family (Geometridae).
