Acraeini Boisduval, 1833

The Acraeini are a tribe of butterflies of the subfamily Heliconiinae in the family Nymphalidae.

The recognized genera are:[1]

Abananote Potts, 1943
Acraea Fabricius, 1807 – acraeas
Actinote Hübner, [1819] – actinotes
Altinote Potts, 1943 – altinotes
Bematistes Hemming, 1935
Cethosia (Fabricius, 1807) – lacewings
Miyana (Fruhstorfer, 1914)

The genus Acraea is highly paraphyletic and needs to be redelimited. This will possibly re-establish the old genus Telchinia, and perhaps others.

The genus Pardopsis Trimen, 1887, previously included in Acraeini, has tentatively been moved to the Argynnini tribe.
