Hadeninae is a subfamily of moth family Noctuidae. The limits between this group and the Condicinae and Noctuinae are still not precisely known, with 3 major and partially conflicting revisions since 2006. Some include the noctuid subfamilies Eriopinae and Psaphidinae here as tribes Eriopini and Psaphidini, yet the former are not even recognized as distinct tribe by all sources. Another proposed treatment is to include the group within an expanded Noctuidae.

Systematics[edit]

The Hadeninae genera are usually assigned to a number of tribes ranging from quite large to (presently) monotypic. Still, a high proportion of genera is not at present assigned to a specific tribe as their relationships require further study. In a number, assignment to the Hadeninae is seriously in doubt (see also notes above).
