Notes:
Fletcher (1979) stated:-

E. depontanata is a junior subjective synonym of Heterolocha thisoaria Guenée, 1857, in Boisduval & Guenée, Hist. nat. Insectes (Spec. gén. Lépid.) 9: 106. Included by Packard as depontanata Packard, an incorrect authorship.

Parsons et al. (1999) included MIMOGONODES Warren, 1895 as a junior synonym of ANTEPIONE Packard, 1876. Parsons et al. (1999) included 8 species in the genus ANTEPIONE.
