Genus Codophila Mulsant & Rey, 1866

Distant (1902a: 158) erroneously chose varius as the type species; varius was not originally included in Codophila by Mulsant & Rey, but it is (and was at that time) a senior synonym of Cimex lunula Fabricius, 1794; Kirkaldy (1909a: xxix) repeated Distant's type designation, but later in the same publication (1909a: 57) correctly indicated that C. lunula should be the generic type.
