Fletcher (1979) stated:-
G. caelebaria is dated from the wrapper of Heft 55, which included page 72 of volume 6, not from the title-page, which is dated 1843-1856. The figures appeared before the text, but the legends are non-binominal. In the legend on plate 68 the specific name is spelt '* Caelibaria', an incorrect original spelling.
Parsons et al. (1999) included ACUSPIS Gumppenberg, 1893; PARIETARIA Leraut, 1981; and YEZOGNOPHOS Matsumura, 1927 as junior synonyms of ELOPHOS Boisduval, 1840.
