Notes:
Otiophora Turner, 1908 was treated in the Pyralidae, Pyraustinae in Fletcher and Nye 1984, 5 : 109. Otiophora was referred to the Spilomelinae from the Pyraustinae within the Pyralidae by Maes, 1994, Bulletin et Annales de la Societe Royale Belge D'Entomologie 130 (7-9) : 165. However the Spilomelinae is cited as a synonym of the Pyralidae, Pyraustinae in the Checklist of the Lepidoptera of Australia, Nielsen, Edwards and Rangsi, 1996, so Otiophora remains in the Pyraustinae.
