The small Noctuidae genus Bombyciella Draudt, 1950, is revised, based on type-material of its only two known species, Bombyciella talpa Draudt, 1950 and Bombyciella sericea Draudt, 1950. Bombyciella antra sp. n. from southwest China is described as a new species close to B. talpa, the type-species of Bombyciella. B. sericea is found to be different in most characters, not congeneric with B. talpa, and most closely related to the genus Euplexia Stephens and Chandata Moore. Therefore a new genus, Maxiana gen. n., is described for its inclusion. These genera belong to two different tribus in the subfamily Xyleninae, Xylenini (Bombyciella) and Phlogophorini (Maxiana gen. n.). The systematic placement within the two subfamilies is also discussed. Lectotypes for B. talpa and B. sericea are designated. Copyright © 2014 Magnolia Press.

The genus Belciades Kozhanchikov, 1950 is reviewed, and its systematic position stated as Pantheinae. Two new species are described, Belciades cyana sp. n. from China, and B. cyanobrunnea sp. n. from China and Thailand. The adult and male and female genitalia of all species are illustrated.

The Old World species of the genus Panthea Hübner [1820] 1816 are revised. The article contains the description of two new species Panthea fuscogrisea sp. n. and Panthea florianii sp. n. from continental China and re-description of two spe-cies P. roberti Joannis 1928 and P. grisea Wileman, 1919 with illustration of male and female genitalia. Diphthera hoenei Draudt, 1950 (syn. n.) is synonymised with P. roberti Joannis 1928. The species Panthea ronnyi Thony, 1996 is excluded from the genus Panthea. Lectotypes for Diphthera hoenei and Panthea roberti are designated. The genus includes five species in the Old World, distributed mainly in Sino-Himalayan subregion of the Palaearctic. A checklist of species of the genus Panthea is presented. The little-known genus Pantheana Hreblay, 1998 with the sole species Pantheana yangzish-erpana Hreblay, 1998 is reviewed. The imagines, male and female genitalia of all Old World species of Panthea and Pantheana are illustrated. Copyright © 2013 Magnolia Press.

Two new genera and three species of the Pantheinae are described. The genus Flavala gen. n. (type-species Acronycta flavala Moore, 1867) is separated from Anacronicta Warren, 1909. The new combination Flavala flavala (Moore, 1867) comb. n. is introduced. Two new species, Flavala crypta sp. n. and F. secunda sp. n. are described based on the result of barcoding of mitochondrial DNA. The new genus Xizanga gen. n. (type-species Xizanga mysterica sp.n.) is tentatively placed in Pantheinae. Copyright © 2012 Magnolia Press.

The Oriental Pantheinae genus Donda Moore, 1882 is revised. The type-species of the genus - Donda eurychlora (Walker, 1858) is recognized as a complex of species. Two new species, Donda continentalis sp. n. from Thailand, China, and Viet-nam and D. sundana sp. n. from Indonesia are described. Two species, D. thoracica Moore, 1882 and D. striatovirens Moore, 1883, are excluded from the genus Donda. The status of two taxa, D. ornata Moore, 1883 and D. lichenoides (Hampson, 1894) remains open. The imagines, male and female genitalia are illustrated. The checklist of the genus Donda is presented.

The present study was initiated upon finding an unknown Hypobarathra species during a collecting expedition to the higher regions of western Sichuan Province in China in 2015. The genus previously contained only two Palaearctic species with remarkably different external appearance and distribution pattern. Interestingly, all three species of Hypobarathra are adapted to completely different eco zones and habitats, which are discussed under each species. According to Hacker et al. (2002), the closest relatives of the genus are Melanchra Hübner, [1820] 1816 and Odontestra Hampson, 1905. This statement should be corrected, since Hypobarathra is forming a common clade with Melanchra, Ceramica Guenée, 1852 and Ebertidia Boursin, 1968, while Odontestra representing another lineage within the tribus Copyright © 2016 Magnolia Press.

Two genera in the noctuid subfamily Pantheinae are revised: Elydnodes Hampson, 1913 and Antitrisuloides Holloway, 1985. Two new species (Elydnodes griseata sp. n. and Antitrisuloides siamensis sp. n.) are described from Thailand, Laos and Malaysia. Copyright © 2011 Magnolia Press.

The genus Anepholcia Prout, 1924 of the subfamily Pantheinae is revised. Three new species (Anepholcia kobesi sp. n., A. brechlini sp. n. and A. philippina sp. n) from Sumatra and Phlippines are described. The misidentification of A. talboti Prout, 1924 by Kobes is corrected. A key for identification of Anepholcia species based on external characters and male genitalia characters is provided. © 2011 Magnolia Press.

A small Central Asian Noctuidae genus Palaeagrotis Hampson, 1907 is revised. One new species, P. adrienneae Volynkin, Gyulai & Behounek, sp. n. is described from South Mongolia. The lectotypes of Hadena inops Lederer, 1853 and Heterographa sibirica Staudinger, 1896 are designated. The adults, and the male and female genitalia are illustrated.

The synonymy of Catocala seibaldi Saldaitis, Ivinskis & Borth, 2010 (= Catocala pseudoformosana Ishizuka, 2010 syn. nov.) is established and a new locality is recorded for the species.
