An illustrated and annotated catalogue is presented of 28 genera and 61 species of Euchromiina (Erebidae, Arctiinae, Arctiini) confirmed to occur in Trinidad and seven species in Tobago. Of these, nine are new records for Trinidad. Images of 34 species of living adults are included. Very little has been recorded regarding food plants and early stages of Euchromiina in Trinidad, but what is known is reported. A supplementary appendix includes all records from Trinidad & Tobago, and figures showing details of the body and male genitalia for selected species.
