Notes:
Fletcher (1979) stated:-

M. nigronotaria is a junior subjective synonym of Carige cruciplaga duplicaria Walker, [1863] 1862, List Specimens Lepid. Insects Colln Br. Mus. 26: 1632.

Epimacaria was originally proposed in the Ennominae, but has since been transferred to the Larentiinae; I have not found any published reference to the transfer.

See also: Carige Walker, [1863].

Parsons et al. (1999) included EPIMACARIA Staudinger, 1897 as a junior synonym of CARIGE Walker, 1863.
