    Erebidae, Aganainae - Asota heliconia

    The aganaids have been placed in various groups in the past, Hypsidae, Arctiidae (which are themselves now part of Erebidae), Noctuidae and as their own familiy, Aganaidae.

    Please see Reza Zahiri's ongoing Ph.D. studies of the higher taxonomic relationships in Noctuoidea for more info....

    cheers, Roger.
