Hemming (1967) stated:-

This name was introduced as a replacement for the name Phoedinus Godman & Salvin, [1894], which is invalid under the Law of Homonymy. Prior to the publication of the name Caicella, the name Phoedinus Godman & Salvin had already been replaced by the name Anaperus Mabille & Boullet, 1919, but unfortunately that name also was invalid under the Law of Homonymy.
