List of moths of India (Noctuidae)

This article is a list of the moths of Family Noctuidae ("sensu" Kitching & Rawlins, 1999) which are found in India. It also acts as an index to the species articles and forms part of the full List of moths of India. Subfamilies and species are listed alphabetically, though the list order of Catocalinae will be based on Holloway, 2005 (updates in progress). Species currently listed are those extracted from Kendrick (2002 [2003] ) and will be augmented by the species listed in Hampson (vol. 2, 1894; vol. 3, 1895), once the updated nomenclature has been worked out and cross referenced against [http://internt.nhm.ac.uk/jdsml/research-curation/projects/lepindex/index.dsml LepIndex] .
