The division to tribes are mostly from[MNA22.2] and[MOB5], a "world view" is still missing. Now most of the taxa from [NHM card]has been added, resulting a "name soup" that needs some organizing...

For now, I am also leaving out the "Lymantriinae" level, until I get somethingthat does not belong into it.
