Taxon classification Animalia Lepidoptera Erebidae

Eucharia centenaria Burmeister, 1878: 436  Fig. 26

Current identity.

Dysschema centenaria centenaria  (Burmeister, 1878).

Material.

Described from a single male from Zárate (Province of Buenos Aires, Argentina).

Type locality.

Zárate [Province of Buenos Aires, Argentina].

MACN.

In the Berg collection there is a male specimen with the following labels: “Cumtypo/comparat.” and "Zarate Kink[elin]." It could be the male holotype; it is in quite good overall condition (Fig. 13).

Remarks.

In the original description Burmeister stated that the taxon was discovered and named by M. Kinkelin. We have not found a publication of Kinkelin describing the taxon. Burmeister apparently was the first to name and describe this taxon and is the sole author. The male specimen labelled “Cumtypo/comparat.” is probably the male holotype. The original description, type locality and collector are identical for this specimen.
