Speyeria hydaspe (Boisduval, 1869)

Annls. Soc. Entomol. Belg. 12: 60, no. 55; figured by Oberthür (1914), Étud. Lépid. Comp. 9(2): pl. 263, fig. 2200 ♂ D&V (lectotype), 2201 ♂ D&V, 2202 ♀ D&V.

Original Combination: Argynnis Hydaspe

Type Locality: “sud de la Californie; suggested to be “Yosemite Valley, Mariposa County, California” by dos Passos and Grey (1947), Am. Mus. Novit. (1370): 21; defined as “Gold Lake, Sierra County, California” by J. Emmel et al. (1998), Syst. W. N. Am. Butts. (2): 34.

Types: Lectotype in USNM, designated by dos Passos and Grey (1947), Am. Mus. Novit. (1370): 21; figured by J. Emmel et al. (1998), Syst. W. N. Am. Butts. (2): 76, figs. 258 ♂ D, 259 ♂ V.

=    purpurascens (Hy. Edwards, 1877)

Proc. Calif. Acad. Sci. [1]7(13): 170-171.

Original Combination: Argynnis monticola Var. purpurascens

Type Locality: “Siskiyou County, in the region surrounding Mt. Shasta, as well as in some parts of Oregon...at the Dalles, Oregon...at Soda Springs, Siskiyou County”; defined as “Soda Springs, Siskiyou County, California” by dos Passos and Grey (1947), Am. Mus. Novit. (1370): 21.

Types: Lectotype (#4238) in AMNH, designated by W. Barnes and McDunnough (1916), Contr. Nat. Hist. Lepid. N. Am. 3(2): 78, as “type”; a paralectotype figured by W. Holland (1931), Butt. Book (rev. ed.): pl. 55, fig. 7 ♂ D.

=    ‡”caliginosa” (J. A. Comstock, 1925)

Bull. South. Calif. Acad. Sci. 24(3): 66; figured by J. A. Comstock (1927), Butts. Calif.: pl. 26, fig. 3 ♂ D (holotype).

Original Combination: Argynnis hydaspe ab. caliginosa

Type Locality: “Modoc Co., Calif.” [California]

Types: “Holotype” in AMNH.

 

Speyeria hydaspe rhodope (W. H. Edwards, 1874)

Trans. Am. Entomol. Soc. 5(1): 13-14; figured by W. H. Edwards (1875), Butts. N. Am. 2(2): pl. Argynnis 6, figs. 1 ♂ D, 2 ♂ V, 3 ♀ D, 4 ♀ V.

Original Combination: Argynnis Rhodope

Type Locality: “British Columbia”; defined as “the Fraser's River country, British Columbia...in the forest on the way from Bates' (commonly called the 100-mile house) to Beaver Lake” by W. H. Edwards (1875), Butts. N. Am. 2(2): [141-142]; suggested to be “Cariboo District, British Columbia” by dos Passos and Grey (1947), Am. Mus. Novit. (1370): 21. F. Brown (1965), Trans. Am. Entomol. Soc. 91(3): 315 tried to further defined this by adding “the forested, broad river-bottoms of the Fraser River system”, which is an error as demonstrated by Kondla (2001),Tax. Rep. Int. Lepid. Surv. 3(1): 3. [British Columbia]

Types: Lectotype in CMNH, designated by dos Passos and Grey (1947), Am. Mus. Novit. (1370): 21; figured by F. Brown (1965), Trans. Am. Entomol. Soc. 91(3): 314, fig. 27 ♂ D&V.

                   =    sakuntala (Skinner, 1911)

Entomol. News 22(3): 108.

Original Combination: Argynnis sakuntala

Type Locality: “Kaslo, B. C.” [British Columbia]

Types: Lectotype (#7035) in ANSP, designated by dos Passos and Grey (1947), Am. Mus. Novit. (1370): 22; a paralectotype figured by W. Holland (1931), Butt. Book (rev. ed.): pl. 56, fig. 4 ♀ V.

Kondla (2001), Tax. Rep. Int. Lepid. Surv. 3(1): 3, determined this synonymy.

                   =    conquista dos Passos & Grey, 1945

Am. Mus. Novit. (1297): 8, figs. 21 ♂ D, 22 ♂ V (holotype).

Original Combination: Speyeria hydaspe conquista

Type Locality: “Little Tesuque Canyon, near Santa Fe, New Mexico, 8000 feet”, almost certainly in error [Santa Fe County]

Types: Holotype in AMNH.

As noted by Ferris (1981), in: Ferris and F. Brown (1981), Butts. Rocky Mtn. States: 311-312, S. hydaspe has not been recorded from New Mexico since the description of this taxon; the types are therefore assumed to be mislabeled specimens of S. h. rhodope.

                         =    ‡skinneri (W. Holland, 1931)

Butt. Book (rev. ed.): 95, pl. 56, fig. 4 ♀ V.

Original Combination: A[rgynnis]. skinneri

Proposed to replace Argynnis sakuntala Skinner, 1911, erroneously though to be preoccupied; a junior objective synonym of sakuntala.
