Rhodoneura configurata Gaede, 1936  , in Seitz. Die Gross -Schmetterlinge des Amerikanischen Faunengebietes. Die amerikanischen Spinner und Schwärmer 6: 1205, fig. 173f (female d); 1 female [holo] type, Brazil, [MSFR].

Taxonomic history. Siculodes nubecula  was described with an illustration of the male. Guenée (1877) noted that the species occurs in Rio de Janeiro [ Brazil] and that the specimen was deposited in his personal collection, and also that the species must be the type species of the genus Iza  . Druce (1895) also referred to I. nubecula  as the type species of the genus.

Rhodoneura configurata  was described and illustrated based on a female [holo] type; synonymized with I. nubecula  by Whalley & Heppner (1995).

Type material. Iza nubecula: Guenée (1858)  was described based on the male, but without specifying the number of specimens. Whalley (1964) mistakenly stated that the holotype is a female when in fact the syntype is a male deposited in the NHMUK. This syntype was found in the collection referred to by Whalley (1964) and includes the author’s original labels that correspond to the published description. To give stability to the proposed name and ensure the correct identification of the species, this syntype is herein designated as a lectotype, with the following labels: / Holotype / Type/ 4. S. Nubecula Gn pl. du Spec. 1 fig. 3.—Wlk 521. Sup. Rio jan. / Siculodes nubecula  Rio Janeiro / Ex. Musaeo Ach. Guénée / Ex Oberth̹r Coll. Brit. Mus. 1927-3. / NHMUK 010921544 /, and the following labels will be added: / LECTOTYPE / LECTOTYPE Siculodes nubecula Guenée, 1858  , Queiroz-Santos, Casagrande & Mielke 2020 /.

Rhodoneura configurata: Gaede (1936)  described the species based on a female [holo]type found in the MSFR, with the author’s original labels with information corresponding to the original description; the holotype bears the following labels: / Typus / configurata  Type det. M. Gaede / Blumenau Sta. Catharina 25.XII.1929. Ad. Friedrich S. / Senckenb. Mus. / 4 / Fotografiert 2014 H. Thöny. /
