Choreutis dolosalis Heydenreich, 1851. Lepid. Eur. Cat. meth. (Syst. Verz. eur. Schmett.), 3: 63. [Herrich-Schäffer, 1850, Syst. Bearbeitung Schmett. Eur. 5: pl.38 figs 262-264 (cited as dolosana on non-binominal legend)]

Fletcher & Nye (1982) stated:-

The legend to plate 38 is non-binominal, therefore C. dolosana is dated from the text.

C. dolosana is a junior objective synonym of Choreutis dolosalis Heydenreich, 1851, Lepid. eur. Cat. meth.: 63, a Fischer von Roeslerstamm manuscript name made nomenclaturally available by Heydenreich. Both nominal species are based on the specimens figured by Herrich-Schäffer in 1850.

Nye & Fletcher (1991) stated:-

Heydenreich referred to Herrich-Schäffer's non-binominal legend to plate 38 and applied the binomen Choreutis dolosalis (with dolosana in synonymy) to figures 262-264 before the relevant part of Herrich-Schäffer's text was published in 1854, ibidem 5: 95, where the binomen Choreutis dolosana was proposed for figures 262-264.

Millieria was included in the Choreutidae; it was included in the "Glyphipterygidae" by Fletcher, 1929, Mem. Dep. Agric. India (Ent.) 11: 140; but subsequently retained in the Choreutidae.

Millieria Ragonot, 1874, was transferred to the new subfamily Choreutidae, Millieriinae and designated as the type-genus by Heppner, 1982, Smithsonian contributions to Zoology (No. 370) : 2.

Millieria was treated in the Choreutidae by Nye and Fletcher, 1991 Generic Names Moths World, 6 : 193.

MILLIERIA was included within the subfamily CHOREUTIDAE: MILLIERIINAE by Dugdale et al., in Kristensen (1999).
