The genus Chabulina Shaffer & Munroe, 2007 is discussed and is considered to consist of the following species: C.  albinalis (Hampson, 1912) (Bocchoris) comb. nov.; C. amphipeda (Meyrick, 1939) (Margaronia) comb. nov.; with its synonym Glyphodes cadeti Guillermet,  1996 syn. nov.; C. astomalis (Felder & Rogenhofer, 1875) (Lepyrodes) comb. nov., with its synonym Nausinoe gueyraudi Guillermet, 2004 syn. nov.; C. bleusei  (Oberthür, 1887) (Synclera) comb. nov.; C. cineralis (de Joannis, 1932) (Margaronia) comb. nov.; C. labarinthalis (Hampson, 1912) (Bocchoris) comb. nov.,  with Bocchoris labyrinthialis Klima, 1939 as a misspelling; C. nuclealis (de Joannis, 1927) (Bocchoris) comb. nov.; C. onychinalis (Guenée, 1854) (Asopia)  comb. nov., with its synonym Zebronia braurealis Walker, 1859; C. putrisalis (Viette, 1958) (Diastictis) comb. nov., and C. tenera (Butler, 1883) (Hydrocampa)  comb. nov.
