Notes:
Nye & Fletcher (1991) stated:-

When Meyrick designated as type-species Depressaria lewinella Newman, 1856, Trans. ent. Soc. Lond. (2) 3: 291, a nominal species not originally included in Pedois, he also on the next page placed neurosticha, a nominal species originally included in Pedois, as a junior subjective synonym of lewinella. Under the Code (Edn 3), Article 69(a)(v), this designation constitutes the fixation of the originally included nominal species as the type-species.

Pedois was attributed by Turner to Meyrick.
