Notes:
Fletcher (1979) stated:-

Nannia Hulst is not preoccupied by * Nannia, Philippi, 1844, Enumeratio Moll. Sicil. 2: 286 (included by Neave, 1940, Nomencl. zool. 3: 261); the latter is an incorrect subsequent spelling of Nanina Risso, 1826 - Mollusca.

Parsons et al. (1999) included NANNIA Hulst, 1896 as a junior synonym of HETEROPHLEPS Herrich-Schäffer, 1854.
