Type material. Catocala olivia   : holotype ♁ [ USNM, examined]. Catocala olivia   has previously been treated as a full species, but, as suggested by Barnes and McDunnough (1918: 41), it is an extreme infrapopulational variant of C. alabamae Grote, 1875   with a large black basal forewing patch. We have seen intergrades between C. olivia   and typical C. alabamae   from several localities in Texas, Arkansas and Oklahoma, and J. Slotten (in litt.) has reared both C. olivia   and typical C. alabamae   ex ovis from a female from eastern Texas. Th e color form parvula W. H. Edwards, 1864 of C. minuta Edwards, 1864   is a parallel to the color form olivia   of C. alabamae   . Type Locality: S[outh] W[est] Texas, [ USA].
