Plutodes Guenée 

Type species: cyclaria Guenée. 

The main features of this genus have already been noted in the tribal description. Most species have basal and distal brown patches on each wing, the distal ones often circular or elliptical and traversed by an irregularly zig-zag line that is slightly darker than the patch itself and often more rufous. The borders of the distal patches are delineated by a fine double dark line centred with slightly iridescent scales.

The genus is diverse in the Oriental tropics and extends more weakly into the Australian tropics and to subtropical latitudes in eastern Asia.
