Nye (1975) stated:-

Antapistis was briefly described and so made nomenclaturally available from 1825 but the only, originally included name * A. mixtalis was and still remains without any description or indication. There has hitherto been no other associated specific name, so, in order to place this genus, C. leucospila, which conforms with Hübner's generic description, has now been included.
