Watson, Fletcher & Nye (1980) stated:-

Rhodocleptria is a junior objective synonym of Chazaria Moore, 1881.

In Nye, 1975, Generic Names Moths World 1, the generic name Chazaria was omitted and Rhodocleptria was therefore incorrectly treated as though it could be used as a valid name.

Poole (1989) included RHODOCLEPTRIA Hampson, 1903 as a junior synonym of CHAZARIA Moore, 1881.
