Notes:
Fletcher (1979) stated:-

A junior homonym of Osteodes Conrad, 1855, Proc. Acad. nat. Sci. Philad. 7: 263 - Mollusca. There is no objective replacement name, but O. procidata is congeneric with Semiothisa gambaria Hübner, 1818, the type-species of Semiothisa Hübner, 1818; the latter is thus available as a subjective replacement name.

See: SEMIOTHISA Hübner, 1818.
