Taxonomic Notes: Meganola varia (Barnes & Lindsey, 1921) is apparently a junior homonym of Meganola varia (Saalmüller, 1884), a species found in Madagascar. Provided the generic placement of the later does not change, the name Meganola extusata (Dyar, 1923), a current synonym of the former, is available and awaits formal recognition as a replacement.
