Fletcher (1979) stated:-
The phrase `typified by lintearia Guen.', which accompanies the original diagnosis of Loxapicia, does not fulfil the conditions required by Article 67(c) of the Code for a valid type-species designation. Warren's concept of the genus is, however, preserved in the formal `present designation' given above.
Parsons et al. (1999) included LOXAPICIA Warren, 1904 as a junior synonym of EUSARCA Hübner, 1813.
