Watson, Fletcher & Nye (1980) stated:-

An incorrect (of a multiple) original spelling of Phaegorista Boisduval, [1836].

Phaegorista Boisduval, [1836] was treated in the Arctiidae, Aganainae by Watson, Fletcher and Nye, 1979 Generic Names Moths World, 2 : 148. Phaegorista was referred to the Noctuidae from the Arctiidae by Goodger & Watson, 1995, The Afrotropical tiger-moths : an illustrated catalogue with generic diagnoses and species distribution, of the Afrotropical Arctiinae (Lepidoptera : Arctiidae), p. 23. * Phoegorista Boisduval,[1836] is therefore also treated in the Noctuidae here.
