The Erebidae are a family of moths, most of which were formerly classified in the family Noctuidae, plus all of the former members of the families Arctiidae and Lymantriidae.[1] This re-classification has not yet met with general consensus, and many resources and publications still follow the older classification scheme (e.g.[1]).
