Udea Guenée, 1845


Udea Guenée, 1845 

Possibly the largest genus of Spilomelinae, Udea  now includes 214 species described from around the World ( Nuss et al., 2016). The fauna of the Western Hemisphere is made up of 52 species ( Munroe, 1995), excluding the two described as new below. All Neotropical species of Udea  were checked to determine the two Galápagos species as new.
