Small to medium-sized (10–35 mm wingspan) moths with relatively broad, usually triangular forewings and fan-shaped hindwings. Th ey are superficially similar to species in the subfamily Pyraustinae ; no easily observed characters separate them from all of the other Crambidae . Larvae are web makers that feed on Brassicaceae and Capparidaceae . Approximately 140 species of Evergestinae are known worldwide, with the center of diversity in the Holarctic region. Th irty-seven species are known from North America; 11 of these are reported from AB. Th e group was revised by Munroe (1973a).

A large group of mostly small to medium-sized (most 10–35 mm wingspan, with a few species up to 60 mm) moths with broad, triangular forewings and fan-shaped hindwings. Most species have long narrow bodies, with the abdomen usually extending beyond the anal angles of the hindwings. Larvae of most species are leaf webbers or stem and fruit borers; a number of species are important crop pests, including the European Corn Borer ( Ostrinia nubilalis ).
Approximately 7400 species of Pyraustinae are known from all regions of the world. The center of diversity is in temperate and tropical Asia. Th ree hundred and sixty-nine species are known in North America; 49 of these are reported in AB. The Pyraustine tribe Pyraustini was revised by Munroe (1976a, 1976b). The remaining North American species are placed in the tribe Spilomelini . Th e higher taxonomy of the Spilomelini was revised by Munroe et al. (1995), which is followed here. The Spi- lomelini is in need of species-level revision, but some genera have been given modern treatment by Munroe (1952, 1955, 1956a, 1956b, 1956c, 1966, 1973b).
