Name
Haeterini Herrich-Schäffer, 1864

The Haeterini are one of the smaller tribes of the Satyrinae in the Nymphalidae (brush-footed butterfly) family. The tribe occurs exclusively in tropical rain forests in the Neotropical realm.

It contains 29 described species and 39 subspecies[a] classified in the following five genera:[b]

Cithaerias Hübner, [1819]
Dulcedo d'Almeida, 1951
Haetera Fabricius, 1807
Pierella Westwood, [1851][c]
Pseudohaetera Brown, 1942

Notes

But these estimates remain contentious, and at least 5 more species can be recognized based on the multispecies coalescent model as suggested by Matos-Maraví et al. (2019)
According to TOLweb, Lepidoptera and Some Other Life Forms (Savela), Wikispecies, and nymphalidae.net Archived 8 December 2010 at the Wayback Machine which all seem to be based on Lamas, G. (2004).

Markku Savela's Pierella page says this is invalid and the correct citation is Herrich-Schäffer, 1865, however no source is given for this conclusion and the LepIndex[1] (among other sources) consider Westwood, [1851] to be correct.
