Notes:
Fletcher & Nye (1984) stated:-

A junior homonym of Ditomoptera Germar, 1839, Nova Acta Acad. Caesar. Leop. Carol. 19 (1): 203 - Insecta, Hemiptera. There is no objective replacement name but D. minutalis was stated by Bleszynski, 1965, in Amsel et al., Microlepid. Palaearctica 1: 51, to be congeneric with Pareromene rebeli Osthelder, 1941, the type-species of Pareromene Osthelder, 1941; the latter is thus available for use as a subjective replacement name.
