Watson, Fletcher & Nye (1980) stated:-

Phoenicoprocta was established as the objective replacement name for Hyela Walker, 1854.

A junior homonym of Phoenicoprocta Druce, 1898 May. There is no objective replacement name but the type-species of Phoenicoprocta Hampson is currently considered to be congeneric with the type-species of Phoenicoprocta Druce. The latter is therefore available for use as a subjective replacement name.
