Notes

The molecular phylogeny of Murillo-Ramos et al. (2019) indicates that the current concept of Nemoria  Hübner is polyphyletic and that N. erina  (Dognin) and N. nigrisquama  (Dognin) do not belong in Nemoria  , though there is insufficient evidence to describe new genera or create new combinations for these two species. Brehm et al. (2019) consequently suggested that their generic names are listed in quotation marks, pending further taxonomic study.

In her revision of Neotropical Nemoria  , Pitkin (1993) transferred Lissochlora albilineata  Warren, 1909 to the genus Nemoria  . This new combination, Nemoria albilineata  (Warren, 1909) consequently became a senior homonym of the Texan species Nemoria albilineata  Cassino, 1927. This homonymy went unnoticed for over a decade, until Koçak and Kemal (2008) designated a replacement name for the junior homonym.
