Nye (1975) stated:-

The type-species was originally proposed as * P. tänialis. Under the Code, Article 32 (c), this is regarded as an incorrect original spelling. Hübner himself emended it to taenialis when Schrankia was proposed.

Poole (1989) included HYPENODES Guenée, 2854 (preoccupied); and HYPENOPSIS Dyar, 1913 as junior synonyms of SCHRANKIA Hübner, 1825.
