Notes:
Fletcher (1979) stated:-

R. delogramma is congeneric and probably conspecific with Liodes neurogramma Turner, 1906, which was later placed by Turner in the Ophiderinae. In 1906 I. F. B. Common (ANIC, Canberra), in a letter to D. S. Fletcher (BMNH), considered that neurogramma should be placed in the Geometridae.

Parsons et al. (1999) included 2 species in the genus RHYNCHOPSOTA.
