Notes

One species in the Scoble and Hausmann (2007) checklist, Cerura melanoglypta   (Lower, 1905), is classified as a geometrine ( Ollerenshaw 2012), but has never formally been transferred from the notodontid genus Cerura   Schrank, 1802. We agree that this species should eventually be assigned to a genus in Geometrinae   , but it is technically not in Geometrinae   at this time.
