Watson, Fletcher & Nye (1980) stated:-

The name zatesima originated from Turner but was used in conjunction with a description and made available by Hampson prior to its proposal for a new species (but spelt as zetesima) by Turner, 1914 December, Proc. R. Soc. Qd 26: 16. Both nominal species were based on the same type-specimen and so are treated as objective synonyms.
