Memo: Fletcher (1979) stated:- The original designation cited `Iridobapta penumbrata sp.n.', a nomen nudum. The type specimen of Iridobapta huntei, labelled `Brit. N. Guinea (Le Hunte)', bears further labels reading `Iridobapta penumbrata Warr. Type female' in Warren's handwriting and, the single female specimen, but omitted to alter the type-species designation and the type-label on the specimen. Parsons et al. (1999) included IRIDOBAPTA Warren, 1903 as a junior synonym of PLECTONEURA Warren, 1896.
