Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorClassification According to Nygren (2004) the taxonomic position of this species within the Autolytinae is ambiguous but most probably belongs to Epigamia; thus, even tough the name Autolytus is considered to be a junior synonym of Myrianida, Nygren (2004) avoided to place the species within one of the accepted genera, retaining the traditional nomenclature and considering it as Epigamia incertae sedis.  [details]
