Nye (1975) stated:-

Viette (1958), ibidem: 278 stated that the species figured by Berio as C. tenebrata Hampson, 1902, Ann. S. Afr. Mus. 2: 301, was a misidentification and represented a new species E. berioi. Under the Code, Article 70, this case should be referred to the Commission.

Tegarpagon was proposed as a subgenus of Athetis Hübner, [1821].

Poole (1989) included TEGARPAGON Berio, 1955 as a junior synonym of ELYPTRON Saalmüller, 1891.
