Nye (1975) stated:-

Phalaena (Bombyx) umbratica Goeze is a junior homonym of Phalaena (Noctua) umbratica Linnaeus, 1758, Syst. Nat. (Edn. 10) 1: 515, -Cuculliinae. There is no objective replacement name but Bombyx ferruginea Esper, 1785, Die Schmett. 3: 246, pl. 47, fig. 5, is a junior subjective synonym of P. umbratica Goeze. The former is therefore available for use as the subjective replacement name.

Poole (1989) included STYGIOSTOLA Hampson, 1908 as a junior synonym of RUSINA Stephens, 1829.
