Introduction

The Brassolini are a neotropical tribe which includes the very large "owl butterflies" (Caligo), as well as a number of other striking species. Many of them are crepuscular, exhibiting rapid flight that almost makes them look like bats. The larvae of brassolines feed on monocots, and some species are pests of palms. Many of the genera are endemic to the Atlantic coastal forests of southeastern Brazil.
