Notes:
Watson, Fletcher & Nye (1980) stated:-

but cited as Miltochrista artaxidia Butler, 1881, a nominal species not
originally included in Nudina. Hampson, however, placed artaxidia as the senior synonym of nubilosa, a nominal species originally included in Nudina. Under the Code, Article 69(a)(iv), this designation constitutes the fixation of the originally included name as the type-species.

N. nubilosa is a junior subjective synonym of Miltochrista artaxidia Butler, 1881, Trans. ent. Soc. Lond. 1881: 8.
