View Image Gallery of Subfamily Euchromiinae

Some features of the subfamily have been discussed in the introductory section to the Syntominae and Euchromiinae starting on Syntominae and Euchromiinae, though this discussion is based primarily on the type genus Euchromia. Features of Euchromia are described below. The subfamily as currently recognised is most diverse in the Neotropics. The numerous genera have hindwing venation as in Euchromia with Sc + Rs and M1 connate at the anterior angle of the cell and two veins (possibly M3 and CuA) connate or stalked at the posterior angle. A second anal vein can be present or absent. CuA sometimes divides into its components distally but is usually unbranched. The venation of many genera is illustrated by Hampson (1898).
