The 11 species in the African Decachorda species are all small moths. The genus belongs to the Micragonini tribe within the Saturniinae subfamily. This is a poorly described and studied genus. The number of species can go up (or down) when eventually someone does a good revision.

The rearing is not particularly difficult if you can get eggs. The Decachorda feed on grasses. The hairy caterpillars do well in plastic containers.
