Synonymy

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

Genus Euphyes Scudder, 1872

4th Ann. Rep. Peabody Acad. Sci. (1871): 80. Type-species: Hesperia metacomet T. Harris, 1862, Ins. injur. Veget. (3rd ed.): 317 (= Hesperia vestris Boisduval, 1852, Annls. Soc. Entomol. Fr. (2)10: 317; subspecies), by original designation. Shuey (1989), J. Res. Lepid. 27(3/4): 160-172, discussed relationships between the various species and groups in this genus.

 

vestris group Shuey, 1993

J. Lepid. Soc. 47(4): 271, 272.

 

Euphyes arpa (Boisduval & Le Conte, [1837])

Hist. Lépid. Amér. sept. (23): pl. 68, figs. [1] ♂ D, [2] ♂ V, [3] ♀ D, [4] larva, [5] pupa.

Original Combination: Hesperia Arpa

Type Locality: Not stated (there is no text); “Georgia” implied from John Abbot’s notes for this drawing.

Types: Types are the specimens that John Abbot painted and are probably lost. Evans (1955), Cat. Am. Hesp. Brit. Mus. (4): 362, noted that the “type” is in BMNH, but Calhoun (2004), J. Lepid. Soc. 58(3): 156, discussed the dubious nature of such Boisduval “types.”
