The Snouted Tigers (Lepidoptera: Erebidae, Aganainae) of Papua Indonesia
by Jaap H.H. Zwier
Note: Just recently the large family Noctuidae has been revised by DNA analysis at higher taxonomic level (Zahiri et al, 2010) which resulted in a new arrangement of the traditional subfamilies within Noctuidae, Erebidae, Euteliidae and Nolidae. Former families as Aganaidae, Lymantriidae and Arctiidae are now placed as subfamilies in the Erebidae! Although the DNA research at these taxa has not reached the end yet it has become clear that the new classification shows a more correct arrangement than the traditional one does. We follow the latest results.
