Nye & Fletcher (1991) stated:-
The type-species was included by Hübner as "Acedes Lapella Linn. Syst. Phal. 378. Hübn. Tin.252." i.e., Phalaena lappella Linnaeus, 1758, Syst. Nat. (Edn 10) 1: 537, as illustrated by Hübner, , Samml. eur. Schmett. 8: pl.37 fig.252. Petersen, 1957, Beitr. Ent. 7: 156, treated "Tinea lapella Hübner" as a synonym of T. trinotella Thunberg.
Under the Code (Edn 3), Article 70(b), the case of a misidentified type-species is to be referred to the Commission to fix as the type-species whichever nominal species will "best serve stability and universality of nomenclature". We suggest that the Commission be asked to designate as the type-species of Acedes Hübner, 1825, the nominal species actually involved, namely Tinea trinotella Thunberg, 1794.
Robinson (2001) included the type-species of ACEDES Hübner, 1825, Tinea trinotella Thunberg, 1794 in the genus TINEA Linnaeus, 1758.
