Subfamily Ennominae  

This is the largest geometrid subfamily in southern Australia, with the Nacophorini   as the most speciose tribe, rivalled only by the Boarmiini   in terms of numbers of genera and species. Other tribes that occur in southern Australia are the Caberini   , Lithinini   and Macariini   with other tribes being largely confined to the tropical and sub­tropical areas of nothern Australia. Five tribes are illustrated here: Boarmiini   , Caberini   , Lithinini   , Macariini   and Nacophorini   .
