Notes:
Fletcher (1979) and Watson, Fletcher & Nye (1980, Generic Names Moths World) statred:-

This genus was originally proposed in the Notodontidae, but was transferred to the Geometridae as a junior subjective synonym of Aoshachia Matsumura, 1927, by Kiriakoff, 1967, in Wytsman, Genera Insect. 217 (B): 2.

Parsons et al. (1999) included AOSHACHIA Matsumura, 1927; MARUMONA Sawamoto, 1938; and SERICANAPHE Kiriakoff, 1964 as junior synonyms of DORATOPTERA Hampson, 1895.
