Synonyms and other taxonomic changes
Thyraylia Walsingham, 1897 (1)
"Thyraylia was listed as a synonym of Cochylis by Razowski (1997, 2009, 2011). However, Pogue (1986) and Brown (2005) both listed Thyraylia as a separate genus. We follow the latter concept." - Meltzer & Brown 2014 (2)(3)(4)
Explanation of Names
Generic epithet from Greek θύραυλία meaning "living out of doors." (1)
