Abstract The higher classification of the families of the Noctuoidea with a quadrifid forewing (Nolidae, Strepsimanidae, Arctiidae, Lymantriidae, Erebidae, and Noctuidae) is reviewed from the perspective of recent classifications and the distribution of derived character states. On the basis of recent morphological and molecular studies, we propose a more inclusive definition of the family Noctuidae that adds the subfamilies Nolinae, Strepsimaninae, Arctiinae, Lymantriinae, and Erebinae to the… Expand
Revision of Lepidoptera of Egypt, Superfamily Noctuoidea Part II: Erebidae, Nolidae and Euteliidae
TLDR
This paper revised the other three families of Noctuoidea (Erebidae, Nolidae and Euteliidae), among the largest families of moths by species count, and found 12 subfamilies in Egypt, among which 140 species and two subspecies belonging to 55 genera are found. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships of Acronictinae with discussion of the abdominal courtship brush in Noctuidae (Lepidoptera)
TLDR
While many previous treatments have stated explicitly that Acronictinae lack abdominal scent brushes, or excluded genera with brushes from the subfamily, it is shown that well‐developed brushes are present in three early diverging acronictine genera: Cerma, Lophonycta, and Sinocharis. Expand
Molecular phylogenetics of Erebidae (Lepidoptera, Noctuoidea)
TLDR
The first large‐scale molecular phylogenetic analysis of the moth family Erebidae is undertaken, including almost all subfamilies, as well as most tribes and subtribes, revealing a well‐resolved skeleton phylogenetic hypothesis with 18 major lineages. Expand
The larval characterization of the Noctuidae sensu Hampson and of the Nolidae sensu stricto, sensu Hampson and its influence on phylogenetical systematics (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae)
TLDR
A characterization of the classical Noctuidae sensu Hampson, Boursin, Hartig & Heinicke, Nye and Poole is achieved by considering larval morphology, which indicates that the Noctuoidea are monophyletic and the Arctiidae are the sister-family of the NoctuidAE. Expand
Further progress on the phylogeny of Noctuoidea (Insecta: Lepidoptera) using an expanded gene sample
TLDR
Maximum‐likelihood analyses of 5–19 genes in 74 noctuoids representing all the families and a majority of the subfamilies of Noctuoidea provide additional corroboration for the main outlines of family‐level phylogeny in Noctuoides, and contribute toward resolving relationships within families. Expand
Molecular systematics of the arctiine tribe Syntomini (Lepidoptera, Erebidae)
TLDR
This study investigates the relationships of the major lineages of Syntomini based on up to eight mitochondrial and nuclear genes and 91 species, representing 39 genera, and finds that the thyretines, in particular, which are restricted to the Afrotropical region, are paraphyletic. Expand
Larva of Abablemma (Noctuidae) with Notes on Algivory and Lichenivory in Macrolepidoptera
TLDR
The larva of Abablemma brimleyana (Dyar) (Noctuidae) is described and illustrated based on ex ova larvae reared on green algae (Protococcus viridis) and is shown to be closely related to Nigetia formosalis, a Scolecocampinae according to Fibiger and Lafontaine. Expand
Description of a new genus and three new species of Erebidae, from Central and South America (Lepidoptera, Arctiinae, Arctiini)
TLDR
The new genus Leocephaluncus is described, with three new species of Arctiinae (Erebidae) from Central and South America, and images of the adult males and their genitalia, data from DNA barcodes and notes on the species’ geographical distribution are included. Expand
A taxonomic revision of the Stictopterinae (Lepidoptera, Noctuoidea, Noctuidae) in China
TLDR
The Stictopterinae from China are revised, and the male genitalia of Lophoptera obliquilinea Prout, 1928 are described for the frist time. Expand
Illustrated catalogue of Neotropical Ctenuchina, Euchromiina and Pericopina types (Lepidoptera, Erebidae, Arctiinae, Arctiini) described by Hans Zerny, with discussion on their taxonomic status.
TLDR
The type material of 54 names of Ctenuchina, Euchromiina and Pericopina proposed by Hans Zerny are treated and Lectotypes are designated for 23 of the taxa, and two new synonyms are proposed. Expand

Systematics and evolution of the cutworm moths (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae): evidence from two protein‐coding nuclear genes
TLDR
Mapping of a preliminary synopsis of species diversities, host use patterns and latitudinal distributions on the phylogeny suggests that the diversification of trifines may have been promoted, to a degree unique among Macrolepidoptera, by the Tertiary expansion of seasonal, open habitats and their associated herbaceous floras. Expand
Phylogenetic utility of elongation factor-1 alpha in noctuoidea (Insecta: Lepidoptera): the limits of synonymous substitution.
TLDR
Interestingly, the few nonsynonymous changes appear no more phylogenetically reliable than synonymous changes, and signal strength for basal divergences is weak and fails to improve with character weighting; thus, dense taxon sampling is probably needed for strong inference from EF-1 alpha regarding deeper splits in Noctuoidea (probably early Tertiary).

More taxa or more characters revisited: combining data from nuclear protein-encoding genes for phylogenetic analyses of Noctuoidea (Insecta: Lepidoptera).
TLDR
Empirical data from noctuoid moths supports the view that in obtaining additional sequence data to solve a refractory systematic problem, it is prudent to take them from an independent gene. Expand
