Notes:
Hemming (1967) stated:-

On the legend to Hübner's plate [65], the specific name appeared in the spelling "blomfildii", this being either an Unjustified Emendation of, or an Incorrect Subsequent Spelling of the name blomfildia Fabricius.

Smyrna was referred to the Coloburinae by Muychondt & Muychondt, 1976, Journal N.Y. ent. Soc. 84 (1) : 29. [Not adopted here].

The higher classification used here follows Lamas (2008).
