Nye (1975) stated:-
P. carnea Thunberg sensu Guenée has been long accepted as a misidentification of Noctua carnea Thunberg, 1788. In fact, Guenée included tecta Hübner as a junior synonym of carnea Thunberg. Under the Code, Article 70 (a), this case should be referred to the Commission.
Incorrect type-species designation: Noctua rubricosa [Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775, a name not, originally included in Pachnobia, and not linked with one of the, originally included names when cited by Grote, 1874, ibidem 2: 23.
