Asthenini is a tribe of geometer moths under subfamily Larentiinae.


Recognized genera and species

Critical analysis by Xue and Scoble [1] indicated 18 genera that belong to the Asthenini with 1 additional, ungrouped species. The 18 genera recognized by this research are:

* Agnibesa Moore 1888
* Anydrelia Prout 1938
* Asthena Hübner 1825
* Asthenotricha Warren 1899
* Bihastina Prout 1916
* Epicyme Meyrick 1885
* Eschatarchia Warren 1894
* Euchoeca Hübner 1823
* Hastina Moore 1888
* Hydrelia Hübner 1825
* Leucoctenorrhoe Warren 1904
* Macrohastina Inoue 1982
* Nomenia Pearsall 1905
* Palpoctenidia Prout 1930
* Parasthena Warren 1902
* Poecilasthena Warren 1894
* Polynesia Swinhoe 1892
* Venusia Curtis 1839


Disassociated genera

The following 7 genera are sometimes associated with the Asthenini, but were excluded by the work of Xue and Scoble:

* Chaetolopha
* Chalyboclydon
* Cleptocosmia
* Eois
* Minoa
* Pseudopolynesia
* Trichodezia


Species incertae sedis

Species ‘Chalyboclydon’ flexilinea was identified by Xue and Scoble as being part of the Asthenini. However, it has not been associated with a specific Asthenini genus.
