Catocala (ex verbis Graecis kato 'post' + kalos 'pulcher' ; Anglice underwing[1]) est genus papilionum subfamiliae Catocalinarum familiae Noctuidarum, in Eurasia et America Septentrionali endemicum.

Plurimis speciebus sunt coloratissimae alae inferiores, plerumque aurantiae, rubrae, vel albae. Clarae animalium quiescentium alae posteriores in conspectu non sunt, ab obscuris alis anterioribus occultatae, sed papilionibus adiuvant in avibus aliisque praedatoribus eludendis si interdiu conturbantur (Stevens 2005).

Larvae plurimarum specierum foliis arborum et fruticum vescuntur.

Ob varietatem colorum et diversitatem specierum, Catocalae conlectoribus papilionum gratissimae sunt.
