Fletcher & Nye (1984) stated:-

A junior homonym of Coeloma Milne-Edwards, 1865, Annls Sci. nat. (Zool.) (5) 3: 324 - Crustacea. There is no objective replacement name but C. tortricalis was stated by Hampson, 1897 Proc. zool. Soc. Lond. 1897: 653, to be a junior subjective synonym of Carcha hersilialis Walker, 1859, the type-species of Carcha Walker, 1859; the latter is thus available for use as a subjective replacement name.
