Taxonomic / nomenclatural notes:
• Type species of genera Lecane Nitzsch, 1827 and Cathypna Gosse, 1886 (the latter is an invalid synonym of the former).
• ?Cathypna affinis Levander after Voronkov (1907) [Ref.18093], ?Lecane grandis (Murray) after Bogoslovsky (1935) [Ref.17051].
?not Cathypna luna (Müller) [as C. luna (Ehrenberg)] after Hudson & Gosse (1886) [Ref.17291], von Hofsten (1910 part.:fig.11b) [Ref.17631)], Chengalath et al. (1971) [Ref.14328] [identities unclear].
• A poorly contracted specimen from freshwater in the Beshezk region (Tverskaya Oblast, Russia), identified as a small L. grandis (Murray), probably concerns Lecane luna (Müller)
(Bogoslovsky, op. cit.).
• As Segers (2007) [Ref.16970] pointed out, "poorly contracted specimens of L. luna were occasionally misidentified as L. presumpta Ahlstrom, which has also been considered a subspecies or infrasubspecific variant of L. luna. L. presumpta is, however, an established synonym of L. papuana".
