Synonymy

Genus Anatrytone Dyar, 1905

J. N. Y. Entomol. Soc. 13(3): 140. Type-species: Hesperia delaware W. H. Edwards, 1863, Proc. Entomol. Soc. Philad. 2(1): 19, no. 8, pl. 5, fig. 2 (= Hesperia logan W. H. Edwards, 1863, Proc. Entomol. Soc. Philad. 2(1): 18-19, no. 7, pl. 1, fig. 5; synonym), by original designation. This genus was resurrected by Scott (1992, Papilio [N.S.]#6): 148-150, and this was confirmed by Burns (1994), J. Lepid. Soc. 48(4): 273-337.

=    Mellana Hayward, 1948

Acta zool. Lilloana 5: 98. Type-species: Atrytone mella Godman, 1900, in: Godman & Salvin, Biol. centr.-amer., Lepid. Rhop. 2(157): 492-493, no. 5; 3: pl. 94, figs. 14 ♂ D, 15 ♂ V, 16 ♂ genitalia, by original designation. Actually, Hayward misidentified Pamphila perfida Möschler, 1879, Verh. zool.-bot Ges. Wien 28: 221, no. 28, as mella, as determined by Burns (1994), J. Lepid. Soc. 48(4): 293-294. This is a case of a misidentified type species. The type-species is Atrytone mella Godman, 1900, as designated by Pelham (2008), J. Res. Lepid. 40: 91 (under Code Article 70.3), misidentified in the original designation by Hayward (1948).
