Watson, Fletcher & Nye (1980) stated:-

Erythoplusia Ichinosé, 1962, was raised from subgeneric to generic rank, and on the same page Autoculeora was established as a subgenus of it.

Antoculeora in the Noctuidae, Plusiinae, is cited here as it was not included in Nye (1975).

Poole (1989) included CERVIPLUSIA Chou & Lu, 1974 as junior synonyms of ANTOCULEORA Ichinosé, 1973.

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