The Catocalini are a tribe of moths in the Erebidae family.[1][2] Adults of many species in the tribe are called underwing moths due to their vividly colored hindwings that are often covered by contrastingly dark, drab forewings.

Taxonomy[edit]

The tribe is most closely related to the Audeini tribe, also within the Erebinae.[1]
