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"
ITIS taxonomy is based on the latest scientific consensus available,
and is provided as a general reference source for interested parties.
However, it is not a legal authority for statutory or regulatory purposes.
While every effort has been made to provide the most reliable and up-to-date
information available, ultimate legal requirements with respect to species
are contained in provisions of treaties to which the United States is a
party, wildlife statutes, regulations, and any applicable notices that have
been published in the Federal Register. For further information on U.S.
legal requirements with respect to protected taxa, please contact the
