Abstract

Nine previously published neotype designations in the noctuid moth genus Catocala are reviewed for compliance with the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature. Eight of the designations are found to have not fulfilled one (75.3.2) of the seven qualifying conditions of Article 75.3 when these were originally published, and are redesignated herein. The eight Catocala names involved are connubialis Guenée, dollii Beutenmüller, grotiana Bailey, irene Behr, micronympha Guenée, stretchii Behr, texanae French and walshii Edwards. The ninth neotype designation, for calphurnia Henry Edwards, is considered valid as originally published.
