The sibling species of Satyrodes were only separated in 1970, on the basis of detailed study of ecological patterns (Cardé et al. 1970). Both of the North American genera Satyrodes and Enodia were formerly included in Lethe.

This page is a Tree of Life Branch Page.

Each ToL branch page provides a synopsis of the characteristics of a group of organisms representing a branch of the Tree of Life. The major distinction between a branch and a leaf of the Tree of Life is that each branch can be further subdivided into descendent branches, that is, subgroups representing distinct genetic lineages.

For a more detailed explanation of the different ToL page types, have a look at the Structure of the Tree of Life page.
