Remarks: Syntype [This specimen is pinned sideways, with slightly crumpled wings and possible meconium stains; it is very likely that this is the specimen that Harris received as an egg or chrysalis and raised to an imago, which he discusses in detail (Harris, 1829: p. 402). Though this specimen was not labeled with a red "cotype" label like the other three, a red type label #35751 was placed on it, as it is most likely to be a syntype. -RLH 2015]
