The Pterophoridae or plume moths are a family of Lepidoptera with unusually modified wings. Though they belong to the Apoditrysia like the larger moths and the butterflies, unlike these they are tiny and were formerly included among the assemblage called "microlepidoptera".
Notodontidae is a family of moths with approximately 3,800 known species. The family was described by James Francis Stephens in 1829. Moths of this family are found in all parts of the world, but they are most concentrated in tropical areas, especially in the New World.
The Lymantriinae are a subfamily of moths of the family Erebidae. The taxon was erected by George Hampson in 1893.
The Lasiocampidae are a family of moths also known as eggars, snout moths, or lappet moths. Over 2,000 species occur worldwide, and probably not all have been named or studied.
The Cossidae, the cossid millers or carpenter millers, make up a family of mostly large miller moths. This family contains over 110 genera with almost 700 known species, and many more species await description. Carpenter millers are nocturnal Lepidoptera found worldwide, except the Southeast Asian subfamily Ratardinae, which is mostly active during the day.
Gunda is a genus of moths of the family Bombycidae. The genus was erected by Francis Walker in 1862. It is primarily an Oriental genus, found in India, China and South-east Asia.
The Calpinae are a subfamily of moths in the family Erebidae described by Jean Baptiste Boisduval in 1840. This subfamily includes many species of moths that have a pointed and barbed proboscis adapted to piercing the skins of fruit to feed on juice, and in the case of the several Calyptra species of vampire moths, to piercing the skins of mammals to feed on blood. The subfamily contains some large moths with wingspans longer than 5 cm (2 in).
Xylorycta is a genus of moths of the family Xyloryctidae. Xylorycta species are found in Africa and Australia and are strongly associated with the plant family Proteaceae, being found on Hakea, Lambertia, Grevillea, Leptospermum, Macadamia, Oreocallis, Persoonia and Telopea. The larvae of some species bore into stems or branches, or the flower spikes of Banksia, but most live in a silk gallery spun in the foliage.

Darantasia is a genus of moths in the family Erebidae. The genus was erected by Francis Walker in 1859.
Eugoa is a genus in the family Erebidae, subfamily Arctiinae. The genus was erected by Francis Walker in 1858. They are found in India, Sri Lanka, Myanmar and Borneo.
Mantala is a monotypic moth genus in the subfamily Arctiinae. Its single species, Mantala tineoides, is found on Borneo. Both the genus and the species were first described by Francis Walker in 1862. The habitat consists of lowland and lower montane forests.
Teulisna is a genus of moths in the family Erebidae. The genus was erected by Francis Walker in 1862. They are found in Sri Lanka, India, Myanmar, Borneo and Java.
Arsacia is a monotypic moth genus of the family Noctuidae. Its only species is Arsacia rectalis. Both the genus and species were described by Francis Walker, the genus in 1866 and the species in 1863. It is found from the Indo-Australian tropics of India, Sri Lanka to Queensland and the Solomon Islands.
Gabara is a genus of moths in the family Erebidae. The genus was erected by Francis Walker in 1866.
Olulis is a genus of moths of the family Noctuidae first described by Francis Walker in 1863.
Cernia is a monotypic moth genus in the family Geometridae. Its only species, Cernia amyclaria, is found in Australia. Both the genus and species were described by Francis Walker in 1860.
Declana is a genus of moths in the family Geometridae that is endemic to New Zealand. The genus was erected by Francis Walker in 1858.
The Tinoliinae are a subfamily of moths in the family Erebidae.
