Catada is a genus of moths of the family Erebidae. It was first described by Francis Walker in 1859.

Palpi slender, sickle shaped and naked. Second joint reaching far above vertex of head and tapering to extremity. Third joint long and slender. Antennae of male somewhat thickened and flattened or minutely ciliated. Thorax and abdomen smoothly scaled. Forewings with vein 7 from upper angle of cell. Hindwings with vein 5 from middle of discocellulars, where veins 6 and 7 usually arise from cell.[1]
