Notes:
Nye (1975) stated:-

Pangraptica was used and unintentionally made nomenclaturally available by Wileman & South prior to its proposal and generic description by Hampson for a concept having a type-species in a different subfamily.

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

Poole (1989) included only 1 species in PANGRAPTICA Wileman & South, 1921.
