Notes:
Watson, Fletcher & Nye (1980) stated:-

Syrrusoides in the Noctuidae, Acronictinae, is cited here as it was not included in Nye, 1975, Generic Names Moths World 1.

Poole (1989) included SYRRUSOIDES in the subfamily AMPHIPYRINAE, subsequently restricted to the genus AMPHIPYRA by Kitching & Rawlins, in Kristensen (1999). Other genera formerly treated in the subfamily AMPHIPYRINAE are treated as HADENINAE by Kitching & Rawlins (loc. cit.).

Poole (1989) included 2 species in the genus SYRRUSOIDES.
