The taxon represented by the nominal species Pseuderesia catharina Butler is currently treated subjectively on taxonomic grounds as being the same as that represented by the older-established nominal species Pentila eleaza Hewitson, [1873] (Ill. exot. Butts 5 : [86], pl. [45], figs 11, 12 - male).

The higher classification used here follows Lamas (2008).
