Synonymy edit

NOTE: The word "nigrita" may be either an adjective[1] or a noun [2]; under ICZN Article 31.2.2, the original spelling should be retained (i.e., treated as a noun), since Fabricius did not explicitly state that it was intended as an adjective, but the majority of recent authors have treated the word as adjectival. As such, the correct spelling under the ICZN appears to be "nigrita".
