Notes:
Nye (1975) stated:-

Bryomoia was proposed as a subgenus of Bryophila Treitschke, 1825.

Poole (1989) included BRYOMOIA in the subfamily AMPHIPYRINAE, subsequently restricted to the genus AMPHIPYRA by Kitching & Rawlins, in Kristensen (1999). Other genera formerly treated in the subfamily AMPHIPYRINAE are treated as HADENINAE by Kitching & Rawlins (1999).

Poole (1989) included BRYOMOEA Hampson, 1908 as a junior synonym of BRYOMOIA Staudinger, 1892.

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