Strysopha was proposed as a replacement name for the preoccupied name Systropha Hübner, 1816, nec Illiger, 1806, (Hymenoptera) by Arora & Chaudhury, 1982, Zoological survey of India Technical Monograph (6) : 27.

This is an unnecessary replacement name as Wittia had already been given as the replacement name in 1980 by Freina.
