Squamura Heylaerts

Type species: maculata Heylaerts.
It is possible that Indarbela Fletcher (type species tetraonis Moore from India) will prove to be a synonym of Squamura but confirmation of this
must await a more extensive survey of the morphology of both Oriental and African genera; only then will firm generic characteristics be identified.
