Watson, Fletcher & Nye (1980) stated:-

Phalaena cribraria Clerck, 1764, is a junior primary homonym of Phalaena cribraria Linnaeus, 1758, Syst. Nat. (Edn 10) 1: 507, Arctiidae, Arctiinae. There is no objective replacement name but Phalaena astrea Drury, 1773, Illust. nat. Hist. 2: index, 11, pl.6, fig.3, is the oldest of its junior subjective synonyms and is therefore available for use as a subjective replacement name.

ARGINA was included within the subfamily ARCTIIDAE: ARCTIINAE by Kitching & Rawlins, in Kristensen (1999).
