Watson, Fletcher & Nye (1980) stated:-

A junior homonym of Paraplocia Pomel, [1872], Paléontologie Prov. Oran. (Zoophytes) 5: 104, - Porifera. The objective replacement name is Calpoparia Watson nom. n. [1980].

Calpoparia Watson, 1980 and Paraplocia were both treated in the Arctiidae, Aganainae by Watson, Fletcher and Nye, 1979 Generic Names Moths World, 2 : 31.

Calpoparia has subsequently been referred to the Noctuidae from the Arctiidae by Goodger & Watson, 1995, The Afrotropical tiger-moths : an illustrated catalogue with generic diagnoses and species distribution, of the Afrotropical Arctiinae (Lepidoptera : Arctiidae), p. 22. Paraplocia is also treated here in the Noctuidae.
