Notes:
Watson, Fletcher & Nye (1980) stated:-

Gonodonta is included here as it is linked with a usage of Ptilodon before it became an available name in the Notodontidae.

Poole (1989) included GONODONTA in the subfamily OPHIDERINAE, treated as CALPINAE by Kitching & Rawlins, in Kristensen (1999).

Poole (1989) included ATHYSANIA Hübner, 1823; and DOSA Walker, 1865 as junior synonyms of GONODONTA Hübner, 1818.
