This is "by design".  The Drupal theme system uses the directory name as
the theme name. Theme names are meant to be mutually exclusive. (Two
themes with the same name is illegal.)

If I'm working with the new Drupal theme system, and create multiple
directories with the same name, even in different subdirectories, then
Drupal picks only one to display (the one in the deepest file
hierarchy).  This is reflected if you do the following:
Go to the themes directory.
Copy "bluemarine" to a name like "themeB".
cd into chameleon.
Copy "marvin" to a name like "themeB".
Go to "Administer Themes" in the Drupal menu.
You will notice that themeB in 'themes/chameleon/themeB' is the only
one listed.  The user would normally expect that two be listed:
'themes/themeB' and 'themes/chameleon/themeB'.
VERY minor bug but a bug nonetheless.
Thank you,
