Acidaliastis Hampson, 1896 

Acidaliastis porphyretica  Prout, 1925

Acidaliastis subbrunnescens  Prout, 1916

Notes

The AfroMoths database ( De Prins and De Prins 2019) states, without a citation, that Acidaliastis porphyretica  was transferred to the genus Acidromodes  Hausmann, 1996 and that Acidaliastis subbrunnescens  was transferred to Hemidromodes  Prout, 1916. After searching the literature, these names were found on other online species lists, but there did not appear to be any formal publications that proposed these new combinations. Thus, Acidaliastis porphyretica  and Acidaliastis subbrunnescens  are currently considered the valid names for these species.
