Noctua caprimulgus  Garsault, 1764  (Aves)
Noctua caprimulgus  Fabricius, 1775  (Lepidoptera)

I found this one by coincidence. You might find some other homonyms 
if you search in a bird database for specific names established in 
the bird genus Noctua. There is quite a high probability that the 
same names were established in the lepidopteran genus Noctua, too.
