The '[ListBuffer<JFXTree> mems]' argument to syncClass should be removed.
'protected void syncToSet(BitSet follow)' should be called
'syncToGoodToken' if it's to be consistent with the call in 'syncToSet()'.
A more serious problem is that this code seems to be suppressing errors,
as opposed to recovering from them. That is, syncToSet will just discard
invalid tokens, rather than reporting that an invalid token was found
before syncing to the next good token.
