Notes:
Fletcher (1979) stated:-

A junior homonym of Anthelia Lamarck, 1816, Hist. nat. Anim. sans Vert├Ębres 2: 407 - Coelenterata. There is no objective replacement name, but A. taylorata is congeneric with Tephrosia fautaria Hulst, 1888, the type-species of Thallophaga Hulst, 1896; the latter is thus available as a subjective replacement name.

See: THALLOPHAGA Hulst, 1896.

Parsons et al. (1999) included ANTHELIA Hulst, 1896 as a junior synonym of THALLOPHAGA Hulst, 1896.
