Homonyms: 2

Higher classification:
NOCTUOIDEA : ARCTIIDAE : Subfamily unassigned

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

* Acribia Boisduval, 1870, was first published in the synonymy of Cocastra Boisduval, 1870, ibidem: 88; and is unavailable under the Code, Article 11(d), as it has not been treated subsequently as an available name of Boisduval, 1870. Boisduval attributed * Acribia to Felder, and presumably had access to Felder's plates and legends (to which Boisduval refers) prior to their publication in 1874.
