Arctiinae is a large and diverse sub-family of moths with around 11,000 species found all over the world, with 6,000 Neotropical species (Scoble 1995). This family includes the groups commonly known as tiger moths (or tigers), which usually have bright colours, footmen (which are usually much drabber), lichen moths and wasp moths. Many species have 'hairy' caterpillars which are popularly known as woolly bears or woolly worms. Caterpillars may also go by the name 'tussock moths' (more usually this refers to Lymantriinae, however).
