Anomis Hübner. Holloway (2005) divided the genus Anomis Hübner, [1821] into a number of smaller, better defined genera, but he was mainly dealing with the southeastern Asian fauna, in general, and the Borneo fauna in particular, so he provisionally restricted the genus Anomis to the New World pending further research on the Neotropical fauna of the Anomini. Reconciling the North American fauna with Holloway's (2005) concepts results in the following changes: transfer of erosa and flava to the genus Cosmophila Boisduval, 1833, privata to Rusicada Walker, editrix Guenée to Gonitis Guenée, and leaving the remainder of the North American species in Anomis. Holloway also provisionally synonymized Alabama Grote with Anomis because it falls within the broader New World concept of Anomis, but it may be a valid genus after the New World Anomis are revised, and Alabama is therefore retained as valid. Anomis was originally proposed in a list (Hübner [1821]a) with no description for either of the two included species, Anomis exacta and A. erosa. Holloway followed Nye (1975) in treating the Neotropical species Anomis exacta Hübner, [1822] as the type-species of Anomis, believing that Anomis erosa had not been validated until 1823 when it was formally described. However, Poole (1989) correctly points out that the original listing of Anomis erosa by Hübner ([1821]a) gives a figure reference to illustrations of the species that were published in 1821 in another work (Hübner [1821]b), so the correct type-species of Anomis is Anomis erosa and the genus Cosmophila Boisduval is a synonym of it. That means that if more restrictive generic limits are adopted for the New World Anomini, as Holloway (2005) did for the Southeast Asian fauna, the Neotropical fauna of Anomis and the associated generic names currently in synonymy with Anomis need to be studied before the North American species can be assigned to genera. Until such a comprehensive study can be undertaken, we have opted to follow Poole (1989) and use an inclusive concept for Anomis, and maintain Alabama Grote as a valid genus until its position with respect to other New World Anomini is known.
