A review of the higher classification of the Noctuoidea (Lepidoptera) with special reference to the Holarctic fauna

  • The higher classification of the Nocluoidea (Oenosandridae, Doidae, Notodontidae, Strepsimanidae, Nolidae, lymanlriidae, Arctiidae, Erebidae, Micronoctuidae, and Noctuidae) is reviewed from the perspective of the classification proposed by KITCHING and RAWLINS (1998). Several taxa are reinstated, described as new, synonymised, or redescribed. Some characters that have been inadequately described, poorly understood, or misinterpreted, are redescribed and discussed. One family, two subfamilies, four tribes, and three subtribes are proposed as new. Available family-group names of Noctuoidea are listed In an appendix.
