Notes:
Nye (1975) stated:-

The type-species name was originally proposed for a misidentification M. Iaudabilis Guenée sensu Grote, 1874, ibidem 6: 157, but was described under the heading 'M. illaudibilis Grote.' Towards the bottom of the page M. illaudabilis was used. From this multiple, by original spelling illaudabilis has always been adopted.

Poole (1989) included 76 species in the genus LACINIPOLIA.
