|Generitype||LT: Drepanotheca macra H.-J. Schrader ex Round, Crawford & Mann 1990|
|Designated by||RCM (003245), p. 689|
|Comments||Fossil. Latin diagnosis in Schrader 1969 (005436) p. 427.Type by original designation. Comments: Genus described in Schrader 1969 (ref. 003203), p. 13, but invalidly published because 2 species are included (D. macra n.sp. and D. bivittata [Grun. & Pant.] n. comb.) and no type is designated (Schrader indicates that the type of the genus is on slide BM 77698 but does not indicate which species is the type). Name validated by Round, Crawford & Mann (1990), p. 689 (ref. 003245) who selected Drepanotheca macra as the type.|
