The Lasiocampidae are a group of moths with fast-flying males and larger sluggish females (Nielsen & Common 1991).

Characters (from Nielsen & Common 1991): Antennae bipectinate in both sexes; proboscis and maxillary palps absent; labial palps porrect, often beak-like with chaetosema-like sense organ on basal segment; epiphysis present in male, reduced or absent in female, tibial spurs very short, 0-2-2; fore wing without retinaculum, R2 and R3 stalked, without areole; hind wing without frenulum, humeral angle expanded, Sc fused with Rs near base, or connected to Rs by R1, Sc with one or more short branches to costa, CuP absent, two anal veins. Larva sometimes with dorsal protuberances, usually with dense secondary setae, sometimes on verrucae, or in pencils or tufts, setae never branched, sometimes scale-like, crochets biordinal, simple. Pupa often hairy, epicranial suture present, sometimes with hooked anal setae; in stiff silken cocoon.
