Nye & Fletcher (1991) stated:-
A junior objective synonym of Alucita Linnaeus, 1758.
The family-group name "Alucitina" (based on the nominal genus Alucita Linnaeus, 1758) was used by Zeller, 1841, Isis Oken, Leipzig 1841:  but printed as 865. The genus-group name Alucitina was established by Heydenreich who incorrectly attributed generic status to Zeller.
