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

Taxonomy[edit]

The Ctenuchina were previously classified as the Ctenuchinae subfamily of the Arctiidae family. That subfamily contained three tribes: Ctenuchini, Euchromiini (wasp moths), and Syntomini. The Arctiidae family was lowered in rank to the Arctiinae subfamily, and consequently, the three tribes became subtribes (with the -ina suffix). Ctenuchina and Euchromiina were reclassified in the Arctiini tribe, while the Syntomina were raised in rank to the Syntomini tribe.[1][2]
