Synonymy

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

Genus Thorybes Scudder, 1872

4th Ann. Rep. Peabody Acad. Sci. (1871): 71. Type-species: Papilio bathyllus J. E. Smith, 1797, in: Smith & Abbot, Ins. Georgia 1: 43, pl. 22, by original designation.

      =    ‡Lintneria W. H. Edwards & Butler, 1877

In: W. H. Edwards, Trans. Am. Entomol. Soc. 6(1): 57, 67. Type-species: Papilio daunus Cramer, 1777, Uitl. Kapellen 2(11): 44, pl. 126, fig. F (= Papilio bathyllus J. E. Smith, 1797, in: Smith & Abbot, Ins. Georgia 1: 43, pl. 22; probably a misidentified type species), by original designation. Preoccupied by Lintneria Butler, 1876, Trans. Zool. Soc. Lond. 9: 620. This genus has been treated as described twice in the same document (e.g., L. Miller and F. Brown (1981), Mem. Lepid. Soc. (2): 11, 177) but it is clear that the reference in the text (p. 57) is only that. In the description (p. 67), Hesperia zampa is mentioned as one of the species contained within the new genus Lintneria, but the type is given as above. See comments under Systasea.

=    Cocceius Godman & Salvin, 1894

Biol. centr.-amer., Lepid. Rhop. 2(114): 336. Type-species: Eudamus pylades Scudder, 1870, Proc. Boston Soc. Nat. Hist. 13: 207, by original designation.

 

Thorybes mexicana (Herrich-Schäffer, 1869)

Corresp-Bl. zool.-min. Ver. Regensburg 23(12): 188, no. 21.

Original Combination: [Eudamus] mexicana

Type Locality: Not stated; syntype labeled “Mexico.”

Types: Syntype in ZMHB.

Species-genus gender conformation is mexicanus.

            =    ananius (Plötz, 1881)

Stettiner Entomol. Ztg. 43(1-3): 99, no. 77; cited unpublished pl. 131.

Original Combination: [Eudamus] Ananius

Type Locality: “Mexico”

Types: Type(s) in ZMHB.

Bridges (1988), Cat. Hesp. (I): 11, suggested that ananius was intended as a replacement name for mexicana. If so, it would be a junior objective synonym.

 

Thorybes mexicana dobra Evans, 1952

Cat. Am. Hesp. Brit. Mus. (2): 131.

Original Combination: [Thorybes mexicana] dobra

Type Locality: “Fort Grant, Arizona” [Graham County]
