Diduga is a genus of moths in the family Erebidae.


Palpi slender and obliquely porrect. Tibia with long spurs. Forewings with vein 3 arise from before angle of cell. Veins 4 and 5 from angle, vein 6 from upper angle and veins 7 and 8 are stalked. Hindwings with vein 4 from angle of cell, vein 5 from above angle, vein 3 absent and veins 6 and 7 are stalked. Forewings of male possess a costal fold acting like the retinaculum.[2]
