The Genera of Nymphalidae

Niklas Wahlberg


The higher classification of Nymphalidae is slowly stabilizing as work on the systematics of the family proceeds. The arrangement shown here of genera within tribes and subfamilies differs somewhat from Harvey's classification, and is based on phylogenetic studies (both published and unpublished). The list here is a simplified version of the Classification of Nymphalidae and does not include names considered currently to be synonyms of the names given below.
