Notes:
Nye (1975) stated:-

Mycterophora was originally placed in the Geometridae.

Fletcher (1979, Generic Names of Moths of the World) stated:-

This genus was originally proposed in the Geometridae, but has since been transferred to the Noctuidae by Dyar, 1904, Proc. U.S. natn. Mus. 27: 877.

Poole (1989) included MYCTEROPHORA in the subfamily OPHIDERINAE, treated as CALPINAE by Kitching & Rawlins, in Kristensen (1999).
