Notes:
Fletcher & Nye (1984) stated:-

Published as * Loxotegopsis Dyar, 1917 Insecutor Inscit. menst. 5 (4-6): 84, and as Loxostegopsis Dyar, 1918 Insecutor Inscit. menst. 5 (10-12, index): 191, 192. * Loxotegopsis has been consistently treated subsequently as an incorrect (of a multiple) original spelling of Loxostegopsis and is so treated in this catalogue.

Shaffer (pers. comm.) treats LOXOSTEGOPSIS in the CRAMBIDAE: SPILOMELINAE.
