Fletcher (1979) stated:-

Hirasichlora was originally proposed as a subgenus of Hirasa Moore, 1888, and was again so proposed by Wehrli, 1953, ibidem 4 (Suppl.): 551.

Hirasichlora Wehrli 1951 was originally an unavailable name as no type-species was designated; Kocak, 1981, Priamus 1 (3) : 102.

Parsons et al. (1999) included HIRASICHLORA Wehrli, 1951; and HIRASODES Warren, 1899 as junior synonyms of HIRASA Moore, 1888.
