Many of Weeks' types bear "MCZ Type" or "MCZ Paratype" labels, sans any published designation, and are therefore conservatively cited as syntypes. In many cases, Weeks' specimens marked as "MCZ Types" might be appropriate lectotype candidates.

Remarks: Labels: "Syntype Sketched; Swinhoe says near Numitor. Why not describe it as a variety say "Boliviana"?; Plate VII Description sent to printer Can. Ent.; I can't place this splendid thing. I have drawers full of this group but not one that fits nor can I imagine what it can be unless there be some recently described that I do not know of yet."
