Nye & Fletcher (1991) stated:-

Chalioides was established to denote a subgenus of Psycha Schrank, 1802. Chalioides was again proposed (but to denote a new genus) and P. vitrea was again proposed (but as Chalioides vitrea) by Hampson, 1893 [February 25], Hist. typical Specimens Lepid. Heterocera Colln Br. Mus. 9: 6, 67, pl.159 fig.15.

Chalioides Hampson, [1893], is a junior homonym of Chalioides Swinhoe, 1892 [November 4]. As Psyche vitrea and Chaliodes vitrea Swinhoe (the type-species of Chalioides Swinhoe) are based on the same type-specimen, then Chalcioides Swinhoe is the senior objective synonym.
