Memo: Nye & Fletcher (1991) stated:- Heinrich designated Paedisca radicana Walsingham, 1879, Illust. typical Specimens Lepid. Heterocera Colln Br. Mus. 4: 53, pl.72 fig.5, as the type-species of Griselda. Obraztsov, 1965, Am. Mus. Novit. 2213: 2, showed that Heinrich had misidentified radicana Walsingham and so Obraztsov, 1964, Bull. zool. Nom. 21: 144, submitted this case of a misidentified type-species to the Commission. The International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature, 1966, ibidem 23 (Opinion 786): 207, ruled (1) that Griselda radicana Heinrich, 1923, be treated as an available name; be placed on the Official List of Specific Names in Zoology: Name Number 2167; and be designated as the type-species of Griselda Heinrich, 1923; and (2) that Griselda Heinrich, 1923, be placed on the Official List of Generic Names in Zoology: Name Number 1734. Treated as a junior subjective synonym of EPINOTIA Hubner, [1825] 1816, Verz. bekannter Schmett. :377 in T@RTS: Online World Catalogue of the Tortricidae (Ver. 2.0) by Gilligan, T. M., J. Baixeras, J. W. Brown & K. R. Tuck. 2012.
