Notes:
Retusia Beck, 1996 was established as a subgenus of Ipimorpha Hübner, [1821] 1816 and is the objective replacement name for the preoccupied name Zenobia Agassiz 1846 by Beck 1996, Neue Entomologische Nachrichten 36 : 58.

Poole (1989) included IPIMORPHA in the subfamily AMPHIPYRINAE, subsequently restricted to the genus AMPHIPYRA by Kitching & Rawlins, in Kristensen (1999). Other genera formerly treated in the subfamily AMPHIPYRINAE are treated as HADENINAE by Kitching & Rawlins (loc. cit.).

Poole (1989) included PLASTENIS Boisduval, 1840; and ZENOBIA Agassiz, 1847 (preoccupied) as junior synonyms of IPIMORPHA Hübner, 1821.

Poole (1989) included 8 species in the genus IPIMORPHA.
