Species: E. basifulva – E. dora – E. eadgara – E. ephora – E. gallica – E. hezia – E. hoppi – E. illauta – E. liliana – E. lineosa – E. lybia – E. marginalis – E. mendozata – E. nubilosa – E. thea – E. uzita – E. yanisi
Type species: Phalaena ephora Stoll,  (page 110, pl. 347). In: Cramer by monotypy
Fletcher & Nye (1982) stated: The only species that Herrich-Schäffer included in Ephoria was listed by him as Ephoria m.paradoxa Cr. 347. D. (ephora)'. The name paradoxa was proposed unnecessarily by Herrich-Schäffer as an objective replacement name.
See Herbin & Mielke, 2018: The generic name Ephoria was published in Herrich-Schäffer’s Synopsis familiarum Lepidopterorum, which was published twice, first in the Syst. Bearbeitung Schmett. Eur. 6: 82-132 (specifically page 91) on .XII.1855, and second in the “Synopsis” of the same, which was included in the Samml. neuer oder wenig bekannter aussereur. Schmett. 1: 2-52 (specifically page 11) on [IX.1856]. The name Colabata was published in Walker, 1856, List Specimens lepid. Insects in Col. Br. Mus. 7: 1736, which was available for issue on 10 May 1856 (Nye 1975: 6). Therefore, Ephoria has precedence over Colabata.
