(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.

= ananius (Plötz, 1881)
Stettiner Entomol. Ztg. 43(1-3): 99, no. 77; cited unpublished pl. 131.
Original Combination: [Eudamus] Ananius

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.
