Notes:
Hemming (1967) stated:-

The taxon represented by the nominal species Larinopoda lycaenoides is currently treated subjectively on taxonomic grounds as being the same as that represented by the older-established nominal species Liptena lircaea Hewitson, [1866] (Ill. exot. Butts 3 : [120], pl. [60], figs 10, 11).

The higher classification used here follows Lamas (2008).
