Notes:
Fletcher & Nye (1984) stated:-

Hampson cited as type-species Hyria vocata Walker, 1861, a nominal species not originally included in Mathoris. At the same time, however, Hampson placed vocata as a senior synonym of crepuscula, a nominal species originally included in Mathoris. Under the Code, Article 69(a)(iv), this designation constitutes the fixation of the originally included nominal species as type-species.
