The Erebidae are a great moth family that contains over 25.000 species. The taxonomy of this great group of moths is not exactly clear and is subject to constant change and discussion. For the sake of being more user-friendly and overseeable, I have divided the Erebidae into their specific subfamilies or groups,
Erebidae (Arctiidae) – Tiger moths : This group contains all the tiger moth species of the world, a large (sub)family of about 10.000+ described species.
Erebidae (Erebinae) – Erebid moths: This group contains all the true Erebid moths (such as underwings, witch moths, fruit piercing moths) of the world, a large (sub)family of about 10.000+ described species.
Erebidae (Lymantriidae) – Tussock moths
