Notes:
Hemming (1967) stated:-

The name Parantirrhoea was published as new in two papers by Wood-Mason that were published almost simultaneously. The first to appear was that cited above which (as there noted) was published on 7th March 1881 ; the second was published in April of the same year (Ann. Mag. nat. Hist. (5) : 7 : 333). The same species was designated as type-species in both these papers.

The higher classification used here follows Lamas (2008).
