In the present paper an attempt is made to bring together careful and newly rewritten descriptions of the adult moths of all the species occurring in Tennessee. No previous attempt has been made to describe the genitalia altho Felt many years ago figured some of them. The notes on the habits, distribution and seasonal history of the various species are the result of numerous observations made during the past ten years in the writer's travels over the state.

For some of the species there is not previous record of any of the facts of their life histories and for none of them has any record been made of their habits in Tennessee except in a few articles published by the writer.
