Fletcher (1979) stated:-
Eunychiodes was originally proposed as a subgenus of Nychiodes Lederer, 1853.
B. amygdalaria is dated from the wrappers of Hefts 31 and 36, not from the title-page of volume 3 which is dated 1847.
The part of Seitz containing page 441 has appeared only in the German edition; the date of its publication is stated on that page to be 17.x.1941.
Parsons et al. (1999) included COMEESIA Wehrli, 1941; EUNYCHIODES Wehrli, 1941; and FRITZWAGNERIA Wehrli, 1941 as junior synonyms of NYCHIODES Lederer, 1853.
