The Abraxini are a tribe of geometer moths in the subfamily Ennominae. Here, the Cassymini are considered a specialized offshoot of the Abraxini and merged therein; some authors consider them a distinct tribe however.[2]

As numerous ennominae genera have not yet been assigned to a tribe,[3] the genus list is preliminary. Most of the genera listed here would be placed in the Cassymini if these are considered separate.[4]

  • Abraxas
    • Magpie, Abraxas grossulariata
    • Clouded magpie, Abraxas sylvata
  • Auzeodes
  • Ballantiophora
  • Berberodes
  • Cassyma
  • Danala
  • Gyostega
  • Heterostegane
  • Hydatocapnia
  • Leuciris
  • Ligdia
    • Scorched carpet, Ligdia adustata
  • Lomaspilis
    • Clouded border, Lomaspilis marginata
  • Ninodes
  • Orthocabera (tentatively placed here)
  • Peratophyga
  • Pristostegania
  • Protitame
  • Pycnostega
  • Stegania
  • Syngonorthus
  • Xenostega
  • Zamarada (tentatively placed here)

Heliomata, otherwise placed in the Macariini, might also belong here.
