This group of Noctuids belongs to the tribe Trifini, which has M2 of the hindwing more or less obsolescent and from middle of DC or from just below middle. The Cuculliae are distinguished from allied sub-tribes by having smooth eyes (hairy in the Hadenae), mid- and hindtibiae without spines (with spines, or at least with the hindtibiae so, in the Agrotides), and the eyes with overhanging eyelashes (not present in the Acronictae).
