Type material. Catocala orion   : holotype ♁ [ CNC, examined]. McDunnough (1922: 288) considered that specimens of C. orion   “approach closest to meskei Grt.   , and may eventually prove to be a race of this species.” We have examined the type series at the CNC, and consider that C. orion   falls within the normal range of geographic variation of C. meskei Grote, 1873   . Type Locality: Lethbridge, Al[ber]ta, [ Canada].
