View Image Gallery of Tribe Xanthorhoini

The presence of a large pair of coremata just distal to the eighth segment in the male abdomen appears to be the most constant feature for this tribe, though the occurrence of a calcar (see Xanthorhoe Hübner) is an additional diagnostic feature that is characteristic of many of the component species. Coremata are generally absent in the sister-tribe, the Cidariini (following), but do occur in some Ecliptopera Warren. Patocka (1995) has described pupal characters in the tribe.
