N.B.: considered a senior synonym of Thalerothele Bertkau, 1880, Harmonicon F. O. Pickard-Cambridge, 1896 [but see below] (and thereby of Pseudohermachura Mello-Leitão, 1927 and Prosharmonicon Mello-Leitão, 1938, per Bücherl, 1962a: 261, contra Mello-Leitão, 1947b: 231, who considered the latter name a junior synonym of Parathalerothele Canals, 1931), Achetopus Tullgren, 1905 (considered a senior synonym of Parathalerothele Canals, 1931 by Schiapelli & Gerschman, 1968b: 185), Euharmonicon Mello-Leitão, 1920, Evagrella Mello-Leitão, 1923 and Taunayella Mello-Leitão, 1923 by Raven, 1985a: 74, but all species previously assigned to Diplura itself, except for the type species, D. macrura (C. L. Koch, 1841), and two others transferred to Rachias, were transferred by Raven (mostly without individual citations) to Linothele Karsch, 1879; not a senior synonym of Harmonicon F. O. Pickard-Cambridge, 1896 (Maréchal & Marty, 1998, contra Raven, 1985a), see note under Harmonicon.
