A complete list of the presently known Hadeninae of Jordan is presented, and the biogeography, phenology and distribution of the same are discussed. Within a German - Israeli project to monitor the Lepidoptera Fauna of the Levant we record from 1986 to 2010 a total of 39 species, ten of which (26%) are new records for the country. In Jordan four tribes of Hadeninae with 16 genera are found. Most of the recorded species belong to the Tribes Hadenini (22) and Leucanini (12), all of the species are of a Palaearctic (13) distribution, Eremic (9), Mediterranean (8) and Irano-Turanian (7) distribution pattern. Most of the Hadeninae are clearly concentrated within one vegetation zone, while only three ubiquitous and polyphagous species are distributed countrywide. In Jordan 75% of the Eremic species known from the Levant are found, while the Irano-Turanian and Mediterranean elements of the same region are represented only by about half, or even less of the known species. Twenty-four species are univoltine with the highest rate of occurrence in spring from March to April; only 2 species are autumnal, the other species are multi-voltine, flying at least twice a year, in spring and again later in autumn.
