  • Abstract:  The afrotropical noctuid genus Euterpiodes Hampson, 1908 is revised. All primary types were examined. The genus is redefined and a provisional subdivision into two species-groups is proposed. In addition to three previously described species, the following ten taxa are described as new: Euterpiodes gracilior spec. nov., E. bleptoides spec. nov., E. latipennis spec. nov., E. cyanofascia spec. nov., E. sororcula spec. nov., E. fictrix spec. nov., E. eremicola spec. nov., E. croceizona spec. nov. (pienaari group), and E. unio spec. nov. and E. umbrata spec. nov. (unio group). A lectotype is designated for Euterpiodes pienaari (Distant). The following new combination is proposed: Dysmilichia pictimargo (Hampson, 1916) comb. nov. (Noctuidae: Acontiinae) (from Euterpiodes). A key to the adults, illustrations of adult moths and male and female genitalia, as well as distribution maps for the southern African species are provided, as is information on phenology and habitat associations. The systematic position of the genus is discussed, and the revision is complemented by a gazetteer.
