Incorrect Subsequent Spelling

Higher classification:
NOCTUOIDEA : NOCTUIDAE : ACONTIINAE

Notes:
Nye (1975) stated:-

An incorrect subsequent spelling also used by Schaus, 1915, Trans. Am. ent. Soc. 41: 3. Recently Todd, [1972] 1971, J. Wash. Acad. Sci. 61: 267, commented that the spelling used by Schaus, 1915, was an unjustified emendation. This is not so, as under the Code, Article 33 (a), there was no 'demonstrably intentional change in the original spelling' of the name.
