Watson, Fletcher & Nye (1980) stated:-

Hampson, 1905, was not proposing Hyalomis as a replacement name for Desmidocnemis Möschler, 1872, Stettin. ent. Ztg 33: 346, - Lepid., Ctenuchidae, but was establishing a new genus for species placed incorrectly in Desmidocnemis, by Hampson, 1898, Cat. Lepid. Phalaenae Br. Mus. 1: 363.
