Genus Cylindronotum Putzeys, 1845  

Cylindronotum   Putzeys, 1845a: 22. Type species: Cylindronotum aeneum   Putzeys, 1845 by monotypy. Etymology. From the Greek cylindros (roller, cylinder) and notos (back, upper surface), probably alluding to the cylindrical pronotum (" corselet ... presque cylindrique ") of the adult [neuter].

Stenonotum   Lacordaire, 1854: 107. Unnecessary replacement name for Cylindronotum   Putzeys, 1845. Etymology. From the Greek stenos (narrow) and notos (back, dorsum) [neuter].

Micragra   Chaudoir, 1873b: 155. Unnecessary replacement name for Cylindronotum   Putzeys, 1845. Etymology (original). From the Greek micros (small) and the generic name Agra   [q.v.], alluding to the resemblance of adults of these small insects to those of Agra   (" ces petits insectes, qui ont le facies des Agra ") [feminine].

Pseudometabletus   Liebke, 1930: 722. Type species: Pseudometabletus nevermanni   Liebke, 1930 by original designation. Synonymy established by Erwin (2004: 22). Etymology. From the Greek pseudos (fallacy, lie) and the generic name Metabletus   [q.v.] [masculine].
