Arctiidae are discussed under Group 3 of the Macro-Moths because Cu in the front wing appears 4-branched in most of them; in the Lithosiinae, which have Cu in the front wing appearing 3-branched, Sc and Rs in the hind wing are fused to beyond the middle of the discal cell, then they diverge.

Identification: Slender, pale brown moths. Wingspread 25-35 mm. Frenulum well developed. M3 and Cui in FW and HW stalked for a short distance beyond discal cell.
