Memo: Hemming (1967) stated:- The name Lithodryas Cockerell was introduced as a replacement for Lithopsyche Scudder, 1889, which is invalid under the Law of Homonymy. Scudder stated that Lithopsyche was a Nymphalid fossil genus near to Hypanartia Hübner. The type-species was obtained from the Tertiary deposits of Florissant. The higher classification used here follows Lamas (2008).
