Notes:
Fletcher & Nye (1982) stated:-

C. fulgens was attributed to `Zeller (i.l.)' but made nomenclaturally available by Felder & Regenhofer, 1875. Choregia was cited by Felder & Regenhofer as `Choregia n.g. (Zeller 1875)'; the name was not published by Zeller until 1877, Horae Soc. ent. ross. 13: 191, where it was proposed as a new genus.

Choregia was established in the Tineidae; it was placed in the Glyphipterigidae by Meyrick, 1913, in Wagner, Lepid. Cat. 13: 33; it was transferred to the Choreutidae by Heppner, 1981, in Heppner & Duckworth, Smithson. Contr. Zool. 314: 56.
