Phaeochlaena lampra

Why is Phaeochlaena lampra in the Notodontidae family? It definitely doesn’t have the silhouette of a Prominent moth, it doesn’t fold it’s wings like a Prominent moth, and if I where the person who discovered it I’d have put it in the Erebidae family. Just to clarify, this isn’t a mistake on iNat’s part either and thats its offical taxonomy. It’s just bothering me…

I’d mark this as the solution but the button isn’t here

Edit: It’s been a week and the button still isn’t here :moyai:
