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

Iranada in the Noctuidae, Ophiderinae, is cited here as it was not included in Generic Names Moths World 1.

Iranada Wiltshire, 1977 was treated in the Noctuidae, Ophiderinae in Watson, Fletcher and Nye, 1980, Generic Names Moths World, : 2. Iranada has subsequently been referred to the Tytinae from the Ophiderinae within the Noctuidae by Speidel, Fanger & Naumann, 1996, Systematic Entomology 21 (3) : 249.

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

Poole (1989) included 6 species in the genus IRANADA.
