63.2. Eustrotiinae 

Small to medium-sized (20–40 mm wingspan) moths with broad wings. Th e group is defined by wing vein characters (modifications to M 2) and larval characters (the larvae of most species retain setae SV 2 on the first abdominal segment). Th is is a complex grouping of moths, badly in need of revisionary and phylogenetic study. As presently defined, the group is probably paraphyletic and possibly polyphyletic in composition. Larvae of most species feed on plants.

Of the approximately 56 species occurring in North America, two species are known to occur in AB.

1767.1 * P Maliattha synochitis (Grote and Robinson, 1868)  ? – – G T: Forbes (1954)

63.3. Acontiinae 

Relatively small (15–30 mm wingspan) trifine noctuid moths. Many species are birddropping mimics, with predominately white, cream, or yellow wings. The subfamily is defined by structural characters of the scaphium, tympanum, and male genitalia of the adults, and also the number and placement of setae SV in the larvae ( Fibiger and Lafontaine 2005). The North American Acontiinae fauna  consists of 87 species; six species in four genera occur in AB. Several of these are among the smallest noctuids in the province. Th e smaller species of Acontiinae  have frequently been misplaced in collections as unidentified microlepidoptera. Th e group needs revision.
