 Comments
       
  Comment: Lawrence and Newton (1995) give the authorship of this subfamily as Erichson, 1845/Blanchard, 1845  
    Lawrence & Newton (1995) state that: "Brontinae has priority over Uleiotinae Gistel (1856: 382) and Hyliotinae (Reitter (1879: 80), and in our opinion neither of the latter names has become accepted widely enough to justify its retention over Brontinae via Art. 40b. It is not clear if the relative priority of the 1845 works by Erichson and Blanchard can be established, but Erichson is the usual cited author of Brontinae and his name is latinized"
