Synonymy

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

  Genus Notamblyscirtes Scott, 2006

Papilio (n.s.) 12: 70. Type-species: Amblyscirtes simius W. H. Edwards, 1881, Trans. Am. Entomol. Soc. 9(1): 6-7, by original designation. Burns (1990), J. Lepid. Soc. 44(1): 18-21, removed simius from Amblyscirtes. Scott (1992), Papilio (n.s.) 6: 160-161, listed simius as “Not-‘Amblyscirtes’”, but it was clear from the context and diagnosis that he did not propose a new name; that shortcoming was rectified as above.
