Different name

I have it under the name of Dendroxena 4-maculata in my Collins book,I wonder if it must have changed,I have agreed anyway,I found loads of Oieceoptoma thoracicum on a dead lamb, fascinating yet horrible thing's.

4-maculata

"quadri" = "4" This is standard short-form of a lengthier scientific name, rather than a name change. Check out how ladybird names look in both long-hand and short-hand.
