Synonymy

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

  Genus Cogia Butler, 1870

Trans. Entomol. Soc. Lond. (4)1870(4): 508. Type-species: Cogia hassan Butler, 1870, Trans. Entomol. Soc. Lond. (4)1870(4): 508, by monotypy.

=    Phoedinus Godman & Salvin, 1894

Biol. centr.-amer., Lepid. Rhop. 2(114): 335. Type-species: Eudamus caicus Herrich-Schäffer, 1869, Corresp-Bl. zool.-min. Ver. Regensburg 23(12): 188, no. 19, by designation of Lindsey (1921), Bull. Labs. Nat. Hist. St. Univ. Iowa 9(4): 35. Not homonymous with “Phoedinus” Doumerc [1835]: 821, 825 (index), which is an incorrect subsequent spelling of Phaedinus Duponchel, 1834, Annls. Entomol. Soc. Fr. 3: 38; not homonymous with “Phoedinus” Duponchel, 1836, Mag. Zool. 6: pl. (Ins.), which is also an incorrect subsequent spelling of Phaedinus Duponchel, 1834; not homonymous with “Phoedinus” Guérin-Méneville, 1838, Rev. Zool. (Soc. Cuvier) 1838: 286, which is a duplication of the above misspelling. Evans (1953), Cat. Am. Hesp. Brit. Mus. (3): 20, stated that Godman and Salvin selected the type-species of this genus, but Hemming (1967), Bull. Brit. Mus. (Nat. Hist.) Entomol. Suppl. 9: 359, correctly fixed the type-species as indicated. Tilden (1949), Bull. South. Calif. Acad. Sci. 48(1): 4-6, and (1975), J. Lepid. Soc. 29(1): 60-61, discussed the validity of this genus (and the supposed homonymy), as well as its relationship to Cogia. L. Miller and F. Brown (1981), Mem. Lepid. Soc. (2): 13-14, accepted the erroneous homonymy. Ferris (1989), Mem. Lepid. Soc. (3): 7, placed Phoedinus as a synonym of Cogia.

      =    ‡Anaperus Mabille & Boullet, 1919

Annls. Sci. Nat., Zool. (10)2(4-6): 232. Type-species: Eudamus caicus Herrich-Schäffer, 1869, Corresp-Bl. zool.-min. Ver. Regensburg 23(12): 188, no. 19, as a replacement name; introduced to replace Phoedinus, erroneously thought preoccupied. Preoccupied by Anaperus Tröschel, 1860, Inhaltsverz. S. B. Ges. Nat. Fr. Berl. 1860: 16, and also a junior objective synonym of Phoedinus.

      =    ‡Caicella Hemming, 1934

Stylops 3(6): 144. Type species: Eudamus caicus Herrich-Schäffer, 1869, Corresp-Bl. zool.-min. Ver. Regensburg 23(12): 188, no. 19, as replacement name. Introduced to replace Phoedinus, erroneously thought preoccupied (and Anaperus, preoccupied); a junior objective synonym of Phoedinus.
