The name in brackets tells

The name in brackets tells you that there has been a name change. In this case, the genus Oedemera has been reorganised and now contains species which were formerly in the genus Oncomera as well as those (such as this) which were previously in genus Oedemera.

Therefore calling the species Oedemera (Oedemera) nobilis means that people know that pre-reorganisation Odemera nobilis is the same as post-revision Odemera nobilis and avoids any confusion
