Notes:
Hemming (1967) stated:-

The name Baoris unicolor Distant, 1886, is invalid, as it is a junior homonym of Baoris unicolor Moore, 1883 (Proc. zool. Soc. Lond. 1883 : 533). It has been replaced by the name Iambrix distanti Shepard, 1937 (in Bryk's Lep. Cat. 83 : 20).

The higher classification used here follows Lamas (2008).
