Note 
From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorSynonymy Type species: Alecto horrida Leach. But, the genus Alecto has no standing, as Alecto horrida is quite unrecognizable from the description or the figure, and the type-specimen has been lost. The genus Alectro Say, 1825 is clearly an emendation of Alecto, as the genus is referred to Leach (A.H. Clark, 1908). [details]
