Taxonomic Notes: Caloreas schausiella (Busck, 1907) was originally included in the list based on a misinterpretation of the type locality, "Las Vegas, New Mexico" instead of Las Vigas de Ramírez, Veracruz, Mexico, in Busck (1907). The only recognized record of this species from north of Mexico is a female and has yet to be verified. See Heppner (2022).
