  Comment: The International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature suppressed the genus Yerbua Forster 1788, which originally included 8 species now placed in diverse groups; none of those species was ever designated type species for the genus, and it was subsequently suppressed (1965). The species, such as Yeruba capensis Forster 1788, were preserved and remain available
