Hemming (1967) stated:-

The taxon represented by the nominal species Pararge dumetorum Oberthur is currently treated subjectively on taxonomic grounds as being congeneric with the taxon represented by the nominal species Hipparchia deidamia Eversmann, 1851, the type-species of Crebeta Moore, [1893]. The generic names Lopinga Moore and Crebeta Moore were published in the same work and on the same date. The relative precedence to be accorded to these names depends therefore on the choice made by the First Reviser. That choice was made by myself in 1964 (Annot. lep. (3) : 78) when I chose the name Lopinga Moore to take precedence over the name Crebeta Moore.

The higher classification used here follows Lamas (2008).
