Pyralis auroralis Schiffermüller, 1775. Ankündung syst. Werkes. Schmett. Wienergegend : 124.

Type-species designation:
by monotypy . [(but included as auroraria Hübner, an incorrect authorship of Phalaena auroraria Borkhausen, 1794, Naturg. eur. Schmett. 5: 477, which is an unjustified emendation of Pyralis auroralis)]

Type specimens:
Type(s) [AUSTRIA]: Vienna district, (? Depository)..

Notes:
Fletcher (1979) stated:-

A junior homonym of Hyria Lamarck, 1819, Hist. nat. Anim. sans Vertèbres 6 (1): 81 - Mollusca. There is no objective replacement name, but Pyralis auroralis is currently regarded as a junior subjective synonym of Phalaena muricata Hufnagel, 1767, the type-species of Anteois Warren, 1900. The latter is thus available as a subjective replacement name.

Hyria was again proposed by Stephens, 1829 [July], Syst. Cat. Br. Insects (2): 150; and 1831, Illust. Br. Ent. (Haustellata) 3: 292.
