This species was posted on 10 June 2003 at these websites as Fryeria menindie Brunckhorst, 1993, which was shown by Yonow (1996) to be a junior synonym of Phyllidia picta Pruvot-Fol, 1957, which Yonow showed was in fact a species of Fryeria J.E. Gray, 1853.
I changed it on 9 June 2007 into Fryeria picta (Pruvot-Fol, 1957) [Phyllidia].
According to Valdés & Gosliner (1999) is the genus Fryeria J.E. Gray, 1853 "simply a sub group of Phyllidia".
I changed it on 10 February 2010 into Phyllidia picta Pruvot-Fol, 1957.
