Notes:
Nye & Fletcher (1991) stated:-

Genduara, together with its type-species from Australia, was established in the Psychidae; it was retained in the Psychidae by Gaede, 1932, in Seitz, Gross-Schmett. Erde 10: 737, with the statement "It may be no Psychid at all". On the advice of E.D. Edwards, Canberra, G. cinerea is placed as a junior subjective synonym of Entometa punctigera Walker, 1855, in the Lasiocampidae.
