Notes:
Nye (1975) stated:-

Geroda when originally proposed contained a second species, but this was doudtfully included and, under the Code, Article 68(c), is not eligible for designation as type-species.

Poole (1989) included GERODA in the subfamily AMPHIPYRINAE, subsequently restricted to the genus AMPHIPYRA by Kitching & Rawlins, in Kristensen (1999). Other genera formerly treated in the subfamily AMPHIPYRINAE are treated as HADENINAE by Kitching & Rawlins (1999).

Poole (1989) included 4 species in the genus GERODA.
