Notes:
Fletcher & Nye (1984) stated:-

A junior homonym of Chloauges Heine, 1863 May, J. Orn. 11 (63): 200 - Aves. There is no objective replacement name but C. suralis was stated by Shibuya, 1928, J. Fac. Agric., Hokkaido imp. Univ. 22: 231, 232, to be congeneric with Pyralis unionalis Hübner 1796, the type-species of Palpita Hübner, [1808]; the latter is thus available for use as a subjective replacement name.
