“The Noctuina form an eceedingly large group of nocturnal moths, although even here there are a few exceptional instances of day-flying species. They are distinguished by their stout bodies and narrow forewings, under which when reposing they conceal the inferior and in many cases more brightly-colored pair. The majority of the species are small and dull in their colors, while a few are among the largest of known insects.” — Encyclopedia Britanica; 1893
