Nye & Fletcher (1991) stated:-

Setiostoma when established contained a second nominal species "Setiostoma? haemitheia F & R." on pl.140 fig.13, but this was doudtfully included and under the Code (Edn 3), Article 68(d), is not eligible for fixation as type-species. Setiostoma was cited by Felder & Rogenhofer as "Setiostoma (n.g. Zeeler, Verh. Zool. bot. Ges. 1875)" but Rye, 1877, in Rye, Zool. Rec. 12 (Insecta): 271, stated that Zeller's work was not published until April 1876.

Setiostoma Felder & Rogenhofer was established in the Tin[eidae]; it was not included by Fletcher, 1929, Mem. Dep. Agric. India (Ent.) 11: 203. S. flaviceps was transferred to the "Glyphipterygidae" by Duckworth, 1971, Smithson. Contr. Zool. 106: 1.
