Notes:
Watson, Fletcher & Nye (1980) stated:-

Crinodes was included by Herrich-Schäffer in his `Synopsis familiarum Lepidopterorum' which was published first in Syst. Bearbeitung Schmett. Eur. 6:82-132. The title-page of volume 6 is dated 1843-1856 but Herrich-Schäffer, 1869, CorrespBl. zool. -min. Ver. Regensburg 23:214, has stated that Heft 68 (which included the Synopsis) was published in 1855; the Heft wrapper is so dated.

The same Synopsis was included in Samml. neuer. oder wenig bekannter aussereur. Schmett, 1: 2-52. The title-page of this work is dated 1850-1858 but Gerstaecker, 1857, Arch. Naturgesch. 23: (2): 431, has stated that pages 1-52 were published in 1856. Further information is given by Fletcher, 1979, in Nye, Generic Names Moths World 3 under Dates of some important Publications.
