Notes:
Nye (1975) stated:-

Druce used this generic name without any indication that it was new, even though his new species described on the same page were marked sp. n. The generic name was probably obtained from Hampson as an identification and was unintentionally made nomenclaturally available by Druce prior to Hampson's generic description for a concept having a different type-species.

Poole (1989) included only 1 species in the genus PARACODIA.
