Synonymy

(From: A Catalogue of the Butterflies of the United States and Canada, Jonathan P. Pelham)

Genus Callophrys Billberg, 1820

Enum. Ins. Mus. Billb.: 80. Type-species: Papilio rubi Linnaeus, 1758, Syst. Nat. (ed. 10) 1: 483, no. 154, by designation of Scudder (1875), Proc. Am. Acad. Arts Sci., Boston 10(2): 132, no. 202.

 

Callophrys dumetorum (Boisduval, 1852)

Annls. Soc. Entomol. Fr. (2)10(2): 291, no. 22; figured by Oberthür (1913), Étud. Lépid. Comp. 9(1): pl. 236, fig. 1926 ♀ D&V.

Original Combination: Thecla dumetorum

Type Locality: “Californie” implied from the title of the paper; defined as “San Francisco, San Francisco County, California” by J. Emmel et al. (1998), Syst. W. N. Am. Butts. (2): 11.

Types: Lectotype in USNM, designated by J. Emmel et al. (1998), Syst. W. N. Am. Butts. (2): 11, figs. 30 ♀ D, 31, ♀ V.

The lectotype of this taxon is a specimen of what had, before this designation, been called Callophrys viridis (W. H. Edwards, 1862). As discussed by A. Warren (2005), C. dumetorum and C. sheridanii are apparently conspecific.

=    viridis (W. H. Edwards, 1862)

Proc. Acad. Nat. Sci. Philad. 14(5): 221, 223, no. 4.
