Fletcher (1979) stated:-
Thierry-Mieg, 1899, ibidem 43: 20, 21 has shown that the species described and figured by Moore, 1868, Proc. zool. Soc. Lond. 1867: 653, pl.32, fig.6 as Abraxas compositata Guenée was a misidentification; he renamed the species Erebomorpha moorei.
See Frontispiece 2, fig.16, Erebomorpha moorei Thierry-Mieg, male.
Under Article 70(a) of the Code, the case of a misidentified type-species should be referred to the Commission.
Parsons et al. (1999) included only 1 species in the genus VINDUSARA.
