3.1. Taxonomie

Kaila (2019: 59) teilt mit: “E. flammeaepennella Costa, 1836 was synonymized with E. subocellea (Stephens, 1834) by Tremewan (1977: 222). This synonymy has been followed since, even though the otherwise recognized geographic distribution of E. subocellea does not extend to the Napoli area, the type locality of E. flammeaepennella. The painting of E. flammeaepennella O. G. Costa, 1836 in the original description (Plate V, fig. 8A) displays brighter forewing pattern and darker hindwings than observed in E. subocellea. Examination of genitalia of recent specimens from Napoli display significant differences in both male and female genitalia between E. subocellea and the specimens from Napoli. The verbal description: “Alis anticis flaviis, fasciis duabus albis, punctis minutissimis atris adspersis; fimbria longa cinerea nigro-punctulata: alis posticis plumbeis”, also points out towards a brighter-colored species than E. subocellea. Based on this evidence, E. flammeaepennella is here considered a valid species., stat. rev.”

3.2. Nomenklatur

Costa beschrieb die Art im Genus Elachista, Subgenus Ornix.

3.3. Datierung und Paginierung der Erstbeschreibung

Hemming (1957) (= Direction 59 ICZN) datiert die Publikation Costas, führt wegen der unübersichtlichen Seitenzählung des Bandes eine neue Pagination in eckigen Klammern ein und macht Vorschläge, wie die Tafeln unverwechselbar zitiert werden können. Wir folgen der Direction 59.
