This volume continues the description of the subfamily Hadeninae from volume 4. As here interpreted, this subfamily includes the classic Hadeninae (sensu Hampson), together with the tribes Episemini, Xylenini, Apameini, Eriopini and Glottulini, as well as the caradrinoid complex (Hoplodrina, Caradrina, Spodoptera, Elaphria, Athetis, etc.), but excludes the condicine, the stilbioid and the stiriine (s.l.) complexes (which were included by Fibiger & Hacker, 1991, in their Ipimorphinae).
