What happened to genus Stephanucha? - Euphoria verticalis

What happened to genus Stephanucha? - Euphoria verticalis
Amado Rd at the St Cruz River, St Cruz County, Arizona, USA
September 5, 2008
Size: 14 mm
Last year this species was IDed by Phillip as Stephanucha verticalis. Its clypeus is dentate - Euphoria's is not. Looking at my old pictures I find it now as Euphoria, the genus page for Stephanucha has disappeared. Why?

Stephanucha was just sunk
This change makes sense (1). Bugguide has several species that were previously in Stephanucha, e.g. areata, pilipennis and this.
