Watson, Fletcher & Nye (1980) stated:-

but cited as Lithosia pandula Boisduval, 1847, a nominal species not originally included in Dyphlebia. Hampson, however, placed pandula as the senior synonym of trimenii, a nominal species originally included in Dyphlebia. Under the Code, Article 69(a)(iv), this designation constitutes the fixation of the originally included nominal species as the type-species.

D. trimenii is a junior subjective synonym of Lithosia pandula Boisduval, 1847, in Delegorgue, Voyage Afr. australe 2: 597.
