Notes:
Hemming (1967) stated:-

Staudinger gave no characters for this genus when he established it in 1871, but this deficiency was made good in 1879 (Hor. Soc. ent. ross. 14 : 262) when, apparently forgetting the action which he had taken eight years earlier, he again introduced Thaleropis as a new genus.

The higher classification used here follows Lamas (2008).
