Notes:
Hemming (1967) stated:-

The text relating to Gnophodes was prepared by Westwood after Doubleday's death and was not published until 1851 (loc. cit. (2) : 363). On this occasion also the above was the only included species, apart from the citation of the name of an unpublished species.

The higher classification used here follows Lamas (2008).
