Notes:
Fletcher & Nye (1982) and Nye & Fletcher (1991) stated:-

Unavailable designation of type-species: Choreutis scintilulana Hübner, [1825], a junior subjective synonym of Pyralis myllerana Fabricius, 1794, has been adopted by some authors as the type-species of Choreutis Hübner, [1825], in the belief that it had been so designated by Fernald, 1900, Can. Ent. 32: 237. Fernald discussed Choreutis in an article, 1900, ibidem 32: 236-245, but made no available designation of type-species for the genus. No type-species designation earlier than that of Walsingham cited above, has been found. Choreutis was discussed by Diakonoff & Heppner, 1980, Ent. Ber., Amst. 40: 196, and a new genus, Prochoreutis Diakonoff & Heppner, was established for Pyralis myllerana Fabricius, 1794.

Choreuis was established in the "Tortrices"; it was included in the "Glyphipterygidae" by Fletcher, 1929, Mem. Dep. Agric. India (Ent.) 11: 47.
