Nye (1975) stated:-

The type-species was originally described as Piada multiplicans var. japonica Leech. Under the amended Code, Article 45, a varietal name is to be accepted as a nomenclaturally available subspecific name. Warren changed its status to that of a species, without stating that he was so doing.

The date of publication of the part of Seitz containing page 288 was stated on page 285 as 1913 January 5th in both the German and the English editions.

Poole (1989) included CAECILA Walker, 1858; PIADA Walker, 1858; PHUMANA Walker, 1863; SPERSARA Walker, 1863; and MIMANUGA Warren, 1913 as junior synonyms of ANUGA Guenée, 1858.
