Hemming (1967) stated:-

The taxon represented by the nominal species Paduka glandulosa Distant is currently treated subjectively on taxonomic grounds as being the same as that represented by the older-established nominal species Hesperia lebadea Hewitson, [1868] (Ill. exot. Butts 4 [109], pl. [58], figs 22, 23).

The higher classification used here follows Lamas (2008).
