Synonymy: Callima nathrax Hodges, 1974
Taxonomic Notes: Callima nathrax (Hodges, 1974), formely in the genus Epicallima Dyar, [1903], an unnecessary replacement of Callima Clemens, 1860 thought to be a homonym of Callima Herrich-Schäffer, 1858, a misspelling of the name Kallima Westwood, 1849, is returned to Callima in Hodges (1974). The name Epicallima has continued to be used by some authors without justification. Per ICZN Article 33 the name is unavailable so Hodges (1974) stands.
