* Yeray Monasterio Leon of Spain recently contacted me (May 2007) and indicates this moth was originally named to honour Queen Isabel of Spain. As such there is a move to try to have the accepted spelling with two ll's in isabellae changed to isabelae to maintain consistency for the honourific name choice.
