The Arctiina are a subtribe of moths in the Erebidae family.


The subtribe was previously treated as a higher-level taxon, the Arctiini tribe, within the Arctiidae family of lichen and tiger moths. The ranks of the family and its subdivisions were lowered in a recent reclassification while keeping the contents of the family and its subdivisions largely unchanged. These changes in rank triggered changes in the suffixes in the names. The Arctiidae family as a whole was reclassified as the Arctiinae subfamily within the Erebidae family. The original subfamilies were lowered to tribes, and the original Arctiini tribe was lowered to subtribe status as Arctiina. Thus the name "Arctiini" used to refer to the subtribe that is the topic of this article, but now that name refers to the tribe that includes this subtribe.


The following genera are included in the subtribe.[1][2]

List of genera after: Dubatolov, 2008[3] and 2010[4]

Other genera that might belong to another tribes[edit]

Euerythra and Kodiosoma are now in Phaegopterina.
