Though Linnaeus recognized them as two different species, it seems that the current practice is to consider U. bella and U. ornatrix to be one and the same. Depending on which reference you look at, though, there still seems to be some variation on whether all the "bella moths" are considered to be U. ornatrix or whether the preferred name should be U. bella.
