Nye & Fletcher (1991) stated:-
When Curtis designated as type-species Phalaena ramella Linnaeus, 1758, Syst. Nat. (Edn 10) 1: 540 (a nominal species not originally included in Anticlea Stephens, and its objective replacement name Philalcea Stephens) he also, on the next page, placed harpana (a nominal species originally included in Anticlea Stephens) as a junior subjective synonym of ramella. Under the Code (Edn 3), Article 60(a)(v), this designation constitutes the fixation of the originally included nominal species as the type-species.
Philalcea was established as an objective replacement name for Anticlea Stephens, 1834, a junior homonym.
