This family is sometimes listed as a subfamily of EREBIDAE, but the caterpillars of ARCTIIDAE are all very hairy, and those of the other subfamilies of EREBIDAE are all rather smooth, so we have retained it as family in its own right followig the Checklist of the Lepidoptera of Australia.

The 301 named Australian members of ARCTIIDAE are divided taxonomically into the three subfamilies listed here:
