Notes:
Poole (1989) included NEOGROTELLA in the subfamily AMPHIPYRINAE, subsequently restricted to the genus AMPHIPYRA by Kitching & Rawlins, in Kristensen (1999). Other genera formerly treated in the subfamily AMPHIPYRINAE are treated as HADENINAE by Kitching & Rawlins (loc. cit.). However the later included NEOGROTELLA in the subfamily STIRIINAE.

Poole (1989) included 3 species in the genus NEOGROTELLA.
