Hemming (1967) stated:-

Bingham published the name Pareronia as a replacement for the name Valeria Horsfield, [1829], which he erroneously rejected on the ground of the tautonymy between that name and the specific name of its type-species. Two attempts were made to publish a series of volumes relating to the butterflies in the Fauna of British India, Bingham being the author of the first attempt (which was never completed) and Talbot, the author of the second attempt (also never finished). This is why, in order to avoid confusion, the Bingham volumes are treated as the First Edition and the Talbot volumes as the Second Edition, although in fact apart from the title these are entirely independent works, having no connection with one another.

The higher classification used here follows Lamas (2008).
