Memo: Hemming (1967) stated:- The name Lithopsyche Scudder is invalid as it is a junior homonym of Lithopsyche Butler 1889 (Proc. zool. Soc. Lond. 1889 (3) : 294). As already noted, it has been replaced by the name Lithodryas Cockerell, 1909. The higher classification used here follows Lamas (2008).
