Fletcher & Nye (1984) stated:-

A junior homonym of Allata Walker, 1862, J. Proc. Linn. Soc. (Zool.) 6: 140 - Lepid., Notodontidae.

There is no objective replacement name but A. penicillata was stated by Hampson, 1896, Trans. ent. Soc. Lond. 1896: 464, to be a junior subjective synonym of Lamida moncusalis Walker, [1859], the type-species of Lamida Walker, [1859]; the latter is thus available for use as a subjective replacement name.
