Notes:
Nye & Fletcher (1991) stated:-

A junior objective synonym of Eulia Hübner, [1825].

Lophoderus was established to contain two species; the second, * Subfascianus, was at that time undescribed and therefore nomenclaturally unavailable, so it was not eligible for consideration as type-species.

Lophoderus was again proposed by Stephens, 1829 [July], Syst. Cat. Br. Insects (2): 184, and again by Stephens, 1834, Illust. Br. Ent. (Haustellata) 4: 143.
