Notes:
Fletcher (1979) stated:-

Morina Grossbeck is not preoccupied by * Morina, Gimmerthal, 1842, Bull. Soc. imp. Nat. Moscou 1842 (3): 654; the latter is an incorrect subsequent spelling of Morinia Robineau-Desvoidy, 1830.

Parsons et al. (1999) included JENANA Clarke, 1939; and MORINA Grossbeck, 1912 as junior synonyms of CHESIADODES Hulst, 1896.
