Memo: Hemming (1967) stated:- Scudder established this genus for a fossil butterfly obtained in the Tertiary deposits of Florissant, Colorado. He attributed this genus to the family Nymphalidae. This was the first fossil butterfly to be found in America. The higher classification used here follows Lamas (2008).
