Notes:
Nye (1975) stated:-

Hymenodrina was proposed as a subgenus of Elaphria Hübner, 1818, but has since been placed as a junior subjective synonym of Platyperigea Smith, 1894, a subgenus of Caradrina Ochsenheimer, 1816.

Poole (1989) included CHARADRINA Agassiz, 1847; PLATYPERIGEA Smith, 1894; EREMODRINA Boursin, 1937; HYMENODRINA Boursin, 1937; and PARADRINA Boursin, 1937 as junior synonyms of CARADRINA Ochsenheimer, 1816.
