Speyeria coronis (Behr, 1864)

In: W. H. Edwards, Proc. Entomol. Soc. Philad. 3(3): 435, no. 2; figured by W. H. Edwards (1868), Butts. N. Am. [1](8): pl. Argynnis 5, figs. 3 ♀ D, 4 ♀ V (as nevadensis), and (1887), Butts. N. Am. 3(2): pl. Argynnis 14, figs. 1 ♂ D, 2 ♂ V, 3 ♀ D, 4 ♀ V (as nevadensis).

Original Combination: Argynnis Coronis

Type Locality: “California” implied from the title of the paper; defined as “Gilroy, [Santa Clara County] California” by W. H. Edwards (1887), Butts. N. Am. 3(2): [98]; subsequently defined as “Alma, Santa Clara County, California” by dos Passos and Grey (1947), Am. Mus. Novit. (1370): 11, in error.

Types: Neotype in CMNH; this specimen was first designated as lectotype by dos Passos and Grey (1947), Am. Mus. Novit. (1370): 11, but subsequently determined not to be a syntype and redesignated as neotype by dos Passos and Grey (1956), Trans. Am. Entomol. Soc. 91(3): 353; figured by J. Emmel et al. (1998), Syst. W. N. Am. Butts.: 109, figs. 4 ♂ D, 5 ♂ V.

Behr (1862), Proc. Calif. Acad. Sci. [1]2(12): 173, no. 2, discussed this species without naming it.

Original Combination: Argynnis californica

Type Locality: “California...at Alma, Santa Clara County”

Types: Holotype (#7034) in ANSP; a paralectotype figured by W. Holland (1931), Butt. Book (rev. ed.): pl. 56, fig. 5 ♂ V.

 

Speyeria coronis halcyone (W. H. Edwards, [1869])

Butts. N. Am. [1](3): [81], pl. Argynnis 9, figs. 5 ♂ D, 6 ♂ V (1869), 3(9): pl. Argynnis 5, figs. 3 ♀ D, 4 ♀ V (1890).

Type Locality: “Colorado”; defined as “Southern border of South Park, Park Co....along the road from Hartzel east to Howbert. The altitude varies a few feet above 7600 feet” by F. Brown (1934), J. N. Y. Entomol. Soc. 42(2): 159, suggested to be “Estes Park, Larimer County, Colorado” by dos Passos and Grey (1947), Am. Mus. Novit. (1370): 12; neotype labeled “Colo.”

Types: Neotype in CMNH, designated by dos Passos and Grey (1947), Am. Mus. Novit. (1370): 12; F. Brown (1965), Trans. Am. Entomol. Soc. 91(3): 265, fig. 7 ♂ D&V, suggested that this may be a syntype, and therefore the lectotype.
