Praxis porphyretica EREBINAE EREBIDAE


Praxis porphyretica EREBINAE EREBIDAE

Was:- Praxis porphyretica CALPINAE NOCTUIDAE

There seems to be a slight difference of opinion as to the correct name.
BOLD systems and ALA both list it as Praxis porphyretica EREBINAE EREBIDAE, but http://lepidoptera.butterflyhouse.com.au/ list it as Praxis porphyretica CALPINAE EREBIDAE.




Family:- EREBIDAE
Sub Family:- EREBINAE
Genus:- Praxis 
Species:- porphyretica






*************************************************************************************

  Prometopus inassueta AMPHIPYRINAE NOCTUIDAE





Family:- NOCTUIDAE
Sub Family:- AMPHIPYRINAE
Genus:- Prometopus 
Species:- inassueta










I was not able to find anything about these two moths in the way of food plants or biology.
Generally if a moth has not been studied in detail it is because it is not an agricultural pest.
