Notes:
Hemming (1967) stated:-

The taxon represented by the nominal species Ismene ionis de Niceville is currently treated subjectively on taxonomic grounds as being the same as that represented by the older-established nominal species Ismene nestor Möschler, 1878 (Verh. zool.-bot. Ges. Wien 48 : 208). In its turn, the taxon represented by the nominal species Ismene nestor is currently treated subjectively as a subspecies of the taxon represented by the older-established nominal species Ismene iluska Hewitson, [1867], (Ill. exot. Butts 4 : [103], pl. [55], figs 10. 11).

The higher classification used here follows Lamas (2008).
