DIURNEA was treated in the OECOPHORIDAE : OECOPHORINAE in Nye and Fletcher (1991); and in the family CHIMABACHIDAE by Hodges, in Kristensen (1999).
Nye & Fletcher (1991) stated:-
The type-species was included by Haworth as fagi with T. fagella placed in its synonymy. Diurnea fagi Haworth, 1811, ibidem: 501, was therefore an unjustified emendation of T. fagella.
The designation by Duponchel is acceptable as a type-species fixation as it is contained in the continuation of a layout in which Duponchel stated, in the same work 7 (2): 102, that the species so cited were the types of genera.
