Scoparia Haworth, 1811 was treated as a valid genus and brought out of synonymy by Leraut, 1984, Alexanor 13 (4) : 160.
Fletcher & Nye (1984) stated:-
Tinea pyralella Hübner, 1796, is a junior primary homonym of Tinea pyralella [Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775 Ankündung syst. Werkes Schmett. Wienergegend: 135; the objective replacement name is Scoparia pyralea Haworth, 1811, Lepid. Br. : 499. It is clear from the text of Hübner's work that he was establishing a new species and not redescribing one already established.
