Subfamily Amphipyrinae. The subfamily name Amphipyrinae was used in a very broad sense by Franclemont and Todd (1982), basically following the concept of Hampson (1908) with the removal of a few groups like the Acronictinae. More recently, the subfamily was greatly restricted to a few genera by Poole (1995), Kitching and Rawlins (1998), and many others. On the basis of variability in larval and genital characters, the subfamily Psaphidinae was combined with the Amphipyrinae as a tribe and the various tribes of the Psaphidinae diagnosed in Poole (1995) were reduced to subtribes of the Psaphidini by Wagner et al. (2008).
