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 confusis E. Bell, 1923

Trans. Am. Entomol. Soc. 48(3): 205-206.

Original Combination: Thorybes confusis

Type Locality: “Tampa, Florida” [Hillsborough County]

Types: Holotype in AMNH; paratypes figured by W. Holland (1931), Butt. Book (rev. ed.): pl. 50, fig. 1 ♂ D, 2 ♀ V.

W. Holland (1931), Butt. Book (rev. ed.): 335, deliberately emended this name to confusus, an unjustified emendation (contra W. Forbes (1960), Mem. Cornell Univ. Agric. Exp. Sta. 371 (part 4): 67).
