Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology Not stated but obviously named for G. M. R. (Georg Marius Reinald) Levinsen (1850-1914) who had described Aonides fulgens in 1884 (now Paraonis fulgens). Aonides gracilis Tauber was also included, and later was decreed (ICZN) the type species. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorGrammatical gender Although named after a man (Georg Marius Reinald Levinsen) Levinsenia is feminine because Mesnil did not specify gender, nor indicate he knew Levinsen was a man, combined with that the genus name ends in an -a (decreed by Art.30.2.4). In ICZN Opinion 1139 of 1979 it is also stated that Levinsenia is feminine (as is Paraonis). [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType species Two previously described Aonides species, 'fulgens' and 'gracilis' were included by Mesnil in new genus Levinsenia, but no type was designated then or later. Type species decreed to be Aonides gracilis Tauber, 1879 by ICZN Opinion 1139 [details]
