Nye (1975) stated:-

See Todd, 1959, Tech. Bull. U.S. Dep. Agric. 1201: 29. P. chorinea is the spelling in the Dutch text and in the Index 1782, page 248. In the French text the spelling is *'choninea', an incorrect original spelling.

P. chorinea is dated from the wrapper of the part and not from the title-page of the volume, 1782.

Poole (1989) included ATHYSANIA Hübner, 1823; and DOSA Walker, 1865 as junior synonyms of GONODONTIA Hübner, 1818
