Aedia is a genus of noctuid moths. The placement in a subfamily is subject to controversy, with various authors placing the genus in Acontiinae, Aediinae, Ophiderinae, Catocalinae or Acronictinae.[1] If it is placed in Catocalinae, it is assigned to its own subtribe, Aediina and if placed in Acontiinae, it is assigned to its own tribe Aediini.
