Notes:
Fletcher (1979) stated:-

From a multiple original spelling in which both * Nothloba and Notholoba were used on page 103, Edwards & Hopwood, [in Neave], 1966, Nomencl. zool. 6: 191, suggested that * Nothloba might be an incorrect spelling of Notholoba, but made no choice. I have adopted their suggestion and have chosen Notholoba as the correct original spelling.

The spelling * Nothloba appeared only at the hand of the generic diagnosis; in the type-species designation, at the head of the original description of the type-species and again in the index 34: 767, the generic name was printed as Notholoba.
Neave, 1940, Nomencl. zool. 3: 349 listed only the incorrect original spelling * Nothloba.

Parsons et al. (1999) included 2 species in the genus NOTHOLOBA.
