Notes:
Nye (1975) stated:-

A junior homonym of Parangitia Druce, 1909, -Lepid., Noctuidae. There is no objective replacement name but P. cervina is congeneric with Parangitia veluta Druce, the type-species of Parangitia Druce, 1909. The latter is therefore available for use as a subjective replacement name.

See: PARANGITIA Druce, 1909.

Poole (1989) included PARANGITIA Hampson, 1910 (preoccupied) as a junior synonym and junior homonym of PARANGITIA Druce, 1909.
