Abstract

The nominal taxon Hesperia illinois Dodge, 1872 (now recognized as Euphyes bimacula illinois) was described from over 40 specimens collected in Bureau County, Illinois, by the brothers Edgar and George Dodge. Since 1999, H. illinois has been represented by a neotype from Grundy County, Illinois, but this designation is nomenclaturally invalid for technical reasons. In addition, at least three syntypes of H. illinois exist. A lectotype is designated, thereby returning the type locality to Bureau County, Illinois.
