Notes:
Hemming (1967) stated:-

Patsuia was established by Moore in a preliminary list of genera, many others of which were also new. He designated a type-species for this genus in this list but did not provide a generic diagnosis for this or for the other new genera then established. In the immediately following Part of the same volume [1898], loc. cit. 3 (33) : 172) this deficiency was however made good.

The higher classification used here follows Lamas (2008).
