The Obtectomera is a clade of macro-moths and butterflies, comprising over 100,000 species in at least 12 superfamilies.[1][2]
Taxonomy

The Obtectomera includes the following 12 superfamilies:[1]

Whalleyanoidea Minet, 1991
Thyridoidea Herrich-Schäffer, 1846 – picture-winged leaf moths
Hyblaeoidea Hampson, 1903 – teak moths
Calliduloidea Moore, 1877 – Old World butterfly-moths
Papilionoidea Latreille, 1802 – true butterflies
Pyraloidea Latreille, 1809 – pyraloid moths
Mimallonoidea Burmeister, 1878 – sack bearers (sometimes included Macroheterocera[2])
Macroheterocera Chapman, 1893
Drepanoidea Boisduval, 1828 – drepanids
Noctuoidea Latreille, 1809 – owlet moths
Geometroidea Leach, 1815 – inchworms
Lasiocampoidea Harris, 1841 – lappet moths
Bombycoidea Latreille, 1802 – bombycoid moths

Some other superfamilies are sometimes included:[2]

Pterophoroidea Latreille, 1802 – plume moths
Alucitoidea Leach, 1815 – many-plume moths
Copromorphoidea [=Carposinoidea[1]] Walsingham, 1897 – fruitworm moths
Epermenioidea Spuler, 1910 – fringe-tufted moths
Gelechioidea Stainton, 1854 – case-bearers, twirler moths, curved-horn moths, etc.

The macroheteroceran superfamilies were previously place in the Macrolepidoptera, but recent molecular studies have failed to recover the Macrolepidoptera as a monophyletic group.[1][2] The latter grouping also included true butterflies (Papilionoidea), New World butterfly-moths (Hedylidae), Old World butterfly-moths (Calliduloidea), and European gold moths (Axioidea).
