Notes:
Fletcher (1979) stated:-

An unjustified emendation of Colostygia Hübner, [1825].

The `Index universalis' was published as Fascicle 12 of the Nomencl. zool.; Callistigia is dated from the wrapper of Fascicle 12, not from its title-page which is dated 1846.

Parsons et al. (1999) included AMOEBE Hübner, 1825; CALLISTIGIA Agassiz, 1847; ERINOBIA Stephens, 1850; EUPERIZOMA Warren, 1900; and PSEUDOBAPTRIA Inoue, 1982 as junior synonyms of COLOSTYGIA Hübner, 1825.
