Status:
Unjustified Emendation

Homonyms: 1

Higher classification:
GEOMETROIDEA : GEOMETRIDAE : ENNOMINAE

Notes:
Fletcher (1979) stated:-

An unjustified emendation of Adactylotis Hübner [1823].

The `Index universalis' was published as Fascicle 12 of the Nomencl. zool.

Adactylotus is dated from the wrapper of Fascicle 12, not from its title-page which is dated 1846.

Parsons et al. (1999) included ADACTYLOTUS Agassiz, 1847 as a junior synoynm of ADACTYLOTIS Hübner, 1823.
