It is clear that parentheses are needed in this case.

 Dear members,
 While I am working on some species of
 Korean Adelidae, I found *Nemophora
 tyriochrysa* was first described as
 *Nemotois tyriochrysa* by Meyrick in
 1935. However, the name is currently
 known as *Nemophora tyriochrysa*
 Meyrick, 1935, not as *Nemophora
 tyriochrysa* (Meyrick, 1935). I looked at
 the paper and found there is a section
 for Adelidae beginning from page 93
 and the first species briefly described
 is "*Nemotois raddei* REB." but the
 rest species are listed as "*N. x*"
 instead of "*Nemotois x*" and one of
 them is "*N. tyriochrysa* n. sp." (on
 p. 94).
 The paper is as follows:
 A. Caradja, E. Meyrick
 Materialien zu einer Microlepidopteren
 fauna der Chinesischen Provinzen
 Kiangsu, Chekiang und Hunan
 Friedländer in Komm, Berlin, Germany
 [in German]
 My question is: shouldn't we consider
 the abbreviated "*N.*" is in fact "
 *Nemotois*", therefore *Nemophora
 tyriochrysa* should be with the author
 name in parentheses? If not, where can
 I find the ICZN rule on this? Maybe
 I am not familiar enough with the
 nomenclatural rules.
