Taxonomy This species was treated as a junior synonym of Phestilla lugubris (Bergh, 1870) by Rudman (1981) and this was endorsed by Cella et al. (2016) on the basis of very similar CO1 sequences. However Faucci et al. (2007) wrote "As Phestilla sibogae and P. lugubris have been synonymized without rationale (Rudman 1981), we treat them as two different species due to their differences in larval development and adult morphology." [details]
