undersides

There is still much taxonomy to do in this subfamily. For example, some taxonomists are of the opinion that the name of the large genus Chrysolarentia (Butler, 1882) is a junior synonym of Euphyia (Hübner, 1825), but here we adhere to the nomenclature of the "Checklist of Australian Lepidoptera".
