Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Chloenopsis Fauchald, 1977 may be valid simply as a new genus for Chloenea sensu McIntosh and C. atlantica McIntosh, 1885, which is not a Chloeia (according to Fauchald, 1977). However, Fauchald mistakenly created it as a replacement name (See note for Chloenea atlantica). Borda et al (2015:327) mistakenly credit Chloenopsis authorship to McIntosh, 1885. [details]
