Fletcher & Nye (1984) stated:-

* Pantographis was the spelling used in the key to the genera on page 270; Pantographa was used in the generic heading on page 387, in the index on page 488 and in the legends to the plates. Pantographa has had universal usage and has been adopted in this in this catalogue as the correct original spelling.

When established Pantographa contained a second nominal species, doubtfully included. Under the Code, Article 67(h), a doubtfully included nominal species cannot be validly designated as type-species.

Shaffer (pers. comm.) treats PANTOGRAPHA in the CRAMBIDAE: SPILOMELINAE.
