Two genus or synonyms?
Jan: help us with this, in the guide we have them listed as two different genus Caradrina amd Platyperigea, but if I understand correctly you are saying that there is only one genus. Let me know so we can correct things in the guide. Thanks.

Platyperigea has been recentl
Platyperigea has been recently downgraded to subgenus level. Now Platyperigea is considered to be a part of huge genus Caradrina. See the reference: Hacker H. H. 2004. Revision of the genus Caradrina Ochsenheimer, 1916, with notes on further genera of the tribus Caradrinini (Lepidoptera, Noctuidae). Esperiana, 10: 7-690
