Notes:
Nye & Fletcher (1991) stated:-

Cecidoses and C. eremita were again described by Curtis, 1835 [December 3], Trans. zool. Soc. Lond. 1: 312 and 313, pl.40 figs 11-17.

Cecidoses was included in the Cecidosidae by Brèthes, 1916, An. Soc. cient. argent. 82: 132; and in the Yponomeutidae by Fletcher, 1929, Mem. Dep. Agric. India (Ent.) 11: 42. It was transferred to the Incurvariidae by Becker, 1977, Polskie Pismo ent. 47: 84. On the advice of Dr. E.S. Nielsen, Canberra, the Cecidosidae is retained as a valid family.

CECIDOSES was included within the family CECIDOSIDAE by Davis, in Kristensen (1999).

The superfamily INCURVARIIOIDEA is treated as ADELOIDEA in Cecidosidae in Wikipedia
