Nye (1975) stated:-

This genus was correctly attributed to Hübner, [1823], by Guenée, 1852, Hist. nat. Insectes (Lépid.) 7: 18. Guenée was not proposed a new genus; he was adding two new species to Anthracia Hübner, [1852]. Hampson, 1913, was incorrect in designating Antrtacia coracias Guenée, 1852 as the type-species of * Anthracia Guenée, 1852.
