Notes:
Fletcher (1979) stated:-

The original designation by Warren of Psilopora thesea Schaus, the only included nominal species, is invalid, as it was then a nomen nudum.

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

Pitkin (2002) included Gazena Walker, 1860; and Psilopora Warren, 1897 as junior synonyms of Bryoptera Guenée, [1858].
