Fletcher & Nye (1984) stated:-

Ragonot cited as type-species Phalaena rosella Scopoli, 1763, a nominal species not originally included in Eurhodope. At the same time and on the same page, however, Ragonot placed rosella as a senior synonym of pudoralis, a nominal species originally included nominal species as the type-species.
