Notes:
Nye & Fletcher (1991) stated:-

In the heading and in the type-species designation Busck spelt his new genus as * Ordupia, an incorrect (of a multiple) original spelling as Busck stated that he had named the genus after Ordrup College, Denmark. Ordrupia was correctly spelt in the heading of the species description and in the legend to the figure. The misspelling were corrected by Busck, 1912, Smithson. misc. Collns 59: 8.
