Notes:
Fletcher (1979) stated:-

P. ntebi is a junior subjective synonym of Pitthea thalassina Warren, 1909, Novit. zool. 16: 118.

This genus was originally proposed in the Hypsidae (now Arctiidae), but has since been transferred to the Geometridae. I have not found any published reference to the transfer.

Parsons et al. (1999) included only 1 species in the genus PSEUDOSOLOE.
