Notes:
Hemming (1967) stated:-

The nominal species of which Toxopeus in the above combination described the new unit javanica as a subspecies is : Lycaena helicon Felder (C.), 1860 (S. B. Akad. Wiss. Wien. 40 : 457).

This is one of a number of generic names first published in the paper cited above against which Toxopeus added a note suggesting that before the appearance of this paper these names might already have appeared in the volume of the serial Treubia for 1929. As has already been explained in the fuller note given on the name Discolampa Toxopeus, another of the names concerned, the paper which Toxopeus had in mind was never published.

The higher classification used here follows Lamas (2008).
