The taxonomy of Catocala nupta (Linnaeus, 1767) and its allies, with description of a new species (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae)

ROBERT J. BORTH, HUGO L. KONS, JR., AIDAS SALDAITIS, LAWRENCE F. GALL

Abstract


The taxonomy of the Catocala nupta (L.), 1757 complex is analyzed using corresponding characters of the male genitalia, wing pattern, and COI 5' mitochondrial DNA, and is presently found to contain only two additional species: Catocala concubia Walker, [1858], and a new species Catocala benedeki described herein. Three new lectotypes are designated, and 12 status changes for existing names are introduced (10 new synonyms, 2 revised statuses).


Keywords
