Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Day (1962:635 and 1967:116) put Chrysopetalum fragile Ehlers, 1864, type of Chrysopetalum, into Paleanotus, consequently synonymising Chrysopetalum into Paleanotus. Perkins (1985:865) restored Chrysopetalum as valid. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType species Type species remains Chrysopetalum fragile Ehlers, 1864, although stated to be a junior synonym to Palmyra debilis Grube 1855 [now Chrysopetalum debile]. Type species cannot be Palymyra debilis directly. The connection is subjective and Chrysopetalum debile was not originally included in the genus. [details]
