Tribe Cassymini Holloway, 1994  

Cassymini   is a tribe of the subfamily Ennominae   established on the basis of some potential synapomorphies such as: a long and slender dorsal process arising from the dorsal margin (costa) of the valva in male genitalia; coremata usually well developed (but sometimes absent), male 8 th sternite unmodified; fovea in male forewings sometimes present; chaetosemata normal; pupa with bifid cremaster ( Holloway 1994). The tribe is distributed worldwide, but especially in the Indo-Malayan, Afrotropical and Neotropical regions (cf. Olson et al. 2001). Structurally Cassymini   are near to tribes Abraxini   , Macariini   and Eutoeini   , but a revision of Cassymini   is needed on the basis of preliminary molecular and morphological phylogeny ( Skou & Sihvonen 2015; Murillo-Ramos et al. 2019; Brehm et al. 2019).
