Notes:
Fletcher & Nye (1984) stated:-

Nymphulodes was established in the Pyralidae Schoenobiinae; it was transferred to the Pyralidae Nymphulinae by Munroe, 1958, Proc. 10th int. Congr. Ent. 1: 301, but cited as Nymphulodes Dyar, an incorrect authorship.

Shaffer (pers. comm.) treats NYMPHULODES in the CRAMBIDAE: NYMPHULINAE.
