Notes:
Nonagria Ochsenheimer, 1816, was treated as a valid genus and brought out of synonymy by Kobes, 1988, Heterocera Sumatrana 2 (6) : 95.

Poole (1989) included NONAGRIA in the subfamily AMPHIPYRINAE, subsequently restricted to the genus AMPHIPYRA by Kitching & Rawlins, in Kristensen (1999). Other genera formerly treated in the subfamily AMPHIPYRINAE are treated as HADENINAE by Kitching & Rawlins (loc. cit.).
