Nye & Fletcher (1991) stated:-
When Curtis designated as type-species Phalaena nitidella Hübner, 1793, Samml. auserlesener Vögel und Schmett.: 9, he also on the next page placed carpini, a nominal species originally included in Psyche, as a junior subjective synonym of nitidella. Under the Code (Edn 3), Article 69(a)(v), this designation constitutes the fixation of the originally included nominal species as the type-species. Both P. nitidella and P. carpini have been treated as junior subjective synonym of Phalaena casta Pallas, 1767, by Kozhanchikov, 1956, Fauna SSSR (N.S.) 62 (Lepid. 3 (2)): 195.
