Boletobiinae

The Boletobiinae are a subfamily of moths in the family Erebidae, containing about 956 species. The taxon was described by Achille Guenée in 1858.[1][2]

TaxonomyEdit

Phylogenetic analysis has determined that several subfamilies of the family Erebidae that have been proposed in entomological literature since 2005, including Araeopteroninae, Aventiinae, Boletobiinae, Eublemminae, and Phytometrinae, together form a strongly supported clade as an aggregated subfamily Boletobiinae. The tribe-level groupings of genera within this expanded subfamily Boletobiinae are a topic of continued study.[2][3]
