Notes

Eleven new species were described ( Han and Xue 2009, Chang and Wu 2013, Wu 2019). The species Hemistola flavitincta  and Hemistola liliana  were transferred to Herochroma  Swinhoe, 1893 by Parsons et al. (1999). Pitkin et al. (2007) implied this was an editorial error and, citing a complete absence of Herochroma  diagnostic characters, transferred both species back to Hemistola  .
