Watson, Fletcher & Nye (1980) stated:-

A junior homonym of Gogana Walker, 1865, ibidem 34: 1219, Lepid., Drepanidae. There is no objective replacement name but G. atrosquama is the senior subjective synonym of Choerotricha glandulosa Felder, 1874, the type-species of Choerotricha Felder, 1874; the latter is therefore available for use as a subjective replacement name.
