This change has been in use for a good while now. I just noticed that we still had a taxon Pratia angulata sitting separate from its new name.

placed as a synonym of Mudaria by Holloway (1989), as follows:
"The type species of Mudaria, despite its uniformly pale forewing ground colour, agrees with Holloway's (1982: 229) characterisation of Plagideicta in forewing pattern elements and genitalic features.
"Holloway defined the genus on the following: a 'thyatirine' brewing pattern of pale leprous blotches on brown; a small tuft of straw-coloured scales or hairs on the anterior margin of some or all of tergites 4-7 in the male (not in the type species); bifid anterior margins to the male 8th tergite and sternite; a broad, often squarish uncus in the male genitalia; an arched harpe on the valves, bearing blunt spines; a broad aedeagus, with a basal sclerotised band in the vesica leading usually to a heavier band that is often spined or serrate; the vesica has a distal, massive cornutus; the female bursa is asymmetric, scobinate and corrugate, the scobination becoming coarser in one part of the bursa."

This is the "nominate subspecies", which means it is the same taxon as the species itself.

Therefore it does not need to be a separate listing from the taxon itself.

University of Otago lichen expert Allison Knight alerted me to this taxonomic change, with this subspecies now being regarded as a distinct species.

See Hayward, G. C., Blanchon, D. J., and Lumbsch, H. T. (2014). Molecular data support Ramalina ovalis as a distinct lineage (Ramalinaceae, Ascomycota), The Lichenologist, (Vol. 46 (4))

The two subspecies ornatus and girardi refer to the same population. When ornatus was used at the species level it was an invalid name because Coluber ornatus was already used for a completely different taxa. For more details check: Camper J D. 1996.
