Nye (1975) stated:-

A junior homonym of Ragonotia Grote, 1888, Can. Ent. 20: 75, -Lepid., Pyralidae. At the end of the paragraph containing the original description of his new genus Staudinger stated that if Ragonotia was preoccupied then the name Doerriesa should be used. This set an unbeatable record for the minimum time required for the proposed of an objective replacement name.

See: DOERRIESA Staudinger, 1900.

Poole (1989) included RAGONOTIA Staudinger, 1900 as a junior synonym of DOERRIESA Staudinger, 1900.
