Nye & Fletcher (1991) stated:-

Hypatopa Walsingham, 1907, was established as an objective replacement name for * Hypatima Herrich-Schäffer, [1853], that Walsingham treated as a junior homonym of Hypatima Hübner, [1825].

Fletcher, 1929, Mem. Dep. Agric. India (Ent.) 11: 113, also treated * Hypatima Herrich-Schäffer as a junior homonym, but Herrich-Schäffer did not establish a new nominal genus but used "Hypatima HV" i.e., the genus of Hübner's Verzeichniss.
