Notes: Reverted back to genus as Digama from Sommeria on 14 July 2021 based on http://www.aganainae.nl. [accessed 22 November 2021]. Digama insulana holotype is a female. However, Hampson [1893] mentions that males of insulana, fasciata and marchallii have bipectinated antennae, with terminal one-fifth being ciliated. Hence images on MOI with bipectinate antennae are assumed to be males of this species.
