  Comment: Despite Scoble's (1999:164) use of the term 'emendation' this name appears to be a simple combination of Drury's name in a new genus that Westwood (1837:16) presented with gender of the epithet matching that of the genus. This does not appear to fall under the Code's definition of 'unjustified emendation,' even if many lepidopterists choose not to follow ICZN Article 31.2
