Notes:
Nye & Fletcher (1991) stated:-

The type-species was included by Haworth as conscripta with T. conscriptella placed in its synonymy. Chelaria conscripta Haworth, 1828, ibidem: 526, was thus an unjustified emendation of T. conscriptella. Under the Code (Edn 3), Article 67(d), the type-species "is deemed to have been cited in its correct original spelling".

Chelaria is a junior objective synonym of Hypatima Hübner, [1825].
