Lepidoptera - classification blues

Lost in a world of taxonomic updates today. There were major papers in December 2011, one revising the whole higher (family level & above) taxonomy of Lepidoptera, and one revising Erebidae - the largest moth family. Have spent some time putting in family corrections, adding subfamilies and tribes for Notodontidae and Nolidae. A long way to go, though.
