Nye & Fletcher (1991) stated:-

When Tutt designated as type-species P. tubulosa Retzius, a nominal species not originally included in Taleporia he also placed pseudobombycella, a nominal species originally included in Taleporia, as a junior subjective synonym of tubulosa. Under the Code (Edn 3), Article 69(a)(v), this designation constitutes the fixation of the originally included nominal species as the type-species.
