Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology The generic name Anaitis derives from the mythology, designating an Iranian goddess, 'Anahita', referred by the Greek and Roman historians of classical antiquity as 'Anaitis'.  [details]

From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorSynonymy Southern (1914) noted that the name Anaitis was preoccupied by Anaitis Duponchel, 1829 (in Godart & Duponchel, 1829) in Lepidoptera (Insecta), and proposed the replacement name Paranaitis. Apparently, Southern's comment passed by unnoticed, since most authors continued to use Anaitis for the phyllocid taxon, treating it as a subgenus of Phyllodoce Lamarck, 1818. Not until the publication of Hartman's (1959) catalogue did Paranaitis come into current use. [details]
