Nye (1975) stated:-
P. oo is dated from the wrapper of the part and not from the title-page of the volume, 1782. Two coloured figures were published, the female in fig. E was the true oo, but the male in fig. F. was Noctua verruca Fabricius, 1794. Phalaena oo Stoll is a junior primary homonym of Phalaena (Bombyx) oo Linnaeus, 1758, Syst. Nat. (Edn. 10) 1: 507, -Noctuidae, Acronictinae. There is no objective replacement name but Plusia includens Walker,  1857, List Specimens lepid. Insects ln Br. Mus. 12.: 914, is the oldest of the junior subjective synonyms and so is available for use as a subjective replacement name.
Poole (1989) included only 1 species in the genus PSEUDOPLUSIA.
