Ken,
Article 29.2 of the latest edition of the ICZN mandates -ini for tribes
and -ina for subtribes (categorical levels previously left unregulated),
in addition to the familiar -oidea for superfamilies, -idae for families
and -inae for subfamilies. (It has nothing to say about names at higher
levels than those.)
