Hesselbarth, et al., 1995 (Selbstverlag Sigbert Wagener, Hemdener Weg 19, D 46399 Bocholt, Germany: 453 (1-754).) regard Apharitis Riley, 1925 as a synonym of Cigaritis Donzel, 1847 and Heath, 1997 (Metamorphosis Occasional Supplement No. 2, April, 1997) regards Apharitis Riley, 1925 as a synonym of Spindasis Wallengren, 1857. Therefore Spindasis is also a synonym of Cigaritis, the latter being the senior genus by 10 years. The genera Spindasis Wallengren and Apharitis Riley were formally synonymized with the genus Cigaritis Donzel by Heath, et al. (2002: vii, 90). ACCassidy (talk) 18:54, 7 December 2011 (UTC)

Now I remember what I was following here when I treated them separately:
  • Larsen, T. B., 2005. Butterflies of West Africa. Stenstrup, Denmark: Apollo Books. (via Tree of Life). It is more recent, however the current classification is used much more elsewhere like en.wp, so I'm happy with leaving it for now. Rocket000 (talk) 05:55, 10 January 2012 (UTC)
