NomenclatureThis genus is often called Catuna. The generic name Evena was published in synonymy (of Jaera Hübner) by Westwood, and viewed as unavailable under ICZN Art. 11.6 by Hemming (1967), who considered Catuna to be the valid name for the genus. However, Cowan (1970) pointed out that Hemming himself (1941) made Evena available by employing it as the senior name for the genus (ICZN Art. 11.6.1). This synonymy is reflected in Bridges' (1988) catalogue, but not in more recent works (Ackery et al., 1995; Larsen 2005).
