Notes:
Nye (1975) stated:-

A junior homonym of Canidia Thomson, 1857, Arch. ent. Paris 1: 193, - Coleoptera. There is no objective replacement name but L. scissa is congeneric with Schinia trifascia Hübner, 1818, the type-species of Schinia Hübner, 1818, which is therefore available for use as the subjective replacement name.

See: SCHINIA Hübner, 1818.
