Synonyms and other taxonomic changes
Phalonidia Le Marchand, 1933
Platphalonidia, has been synonymized with Phalonidia by Razowski, 2011 : "Remarks: Platphalonidia was described for Phalonia felix Walsingham, 1895 and over 10 other species from the New World. Unfortunately the type-species belongs to Phalonidia and differs from the remaining New World species."
Only felix was officially moved. The rest were moved to Platphalonia by Metzler & Albu, 2013. As of 8/18/2015 has those other species placed in Phalonidia but will be updated at some point in the near future.
