Hyblaeidae are the "teak moths", a family of insects in the Lepidopteran order. The two genera with about 18 species make up the Hyblaeoidea superfamily, which has sometimes been included in the Pyraloidea. However, the position of this family is currently uncertain within the group Obtectomera [2]. Males have a specialised "hair-pencil" on the hindleg (Dugdale et al., 1999). The genus Hyblaea is distributed through the Old World tropics and Torone, the Neotropics. Caterpillar host plants are well known and almost exclusively the families Bignoniaceae, Verbenaceae and the related mangrove family Avicenniaceae, the mangrove family Rhizophoraceae and a very few other families.[1] References[edit]
