SynonymsEdit

Obsolete scientific names (junior synonyms and others) of Pammene are:[3]

The synonymy of Pammene has been subject to some confusion with its close relatives Cydia and Epinotia: Eucelis, Orchemia and Trycheris are sometimes[4] listed as junior synonyms of the former, and Halonota has been listed[5] as synonym of the latter. But the type species of Eucelis and Trycheris is Tortrix mediana (a junior synonym of P. aurana), that of Orchemia is O. gallicana (a junior synonym of P. gallicana), and that of Halonota is Pyralis populana (a junior synonym of P. populana). Thus, Eucelis, Halonota, Orchemia and Trycheris are all junior subjective synonym of the present genus.[1]
