Type material. Catocala neogama race loretta   : the original description lists 4 males and 3 females from several Texas localities, and a male type from the USNM is designated as lectotype to clarify application of the name loretta   . Th e lectotype bears the labels “Black Jack / Spgs, Texas ”, “ C. neogama   / v. lucetta   [sic] / Type B+McD”, “Barnes / Collection.” We noted above under the entry for the name euphemia   that the larvae of C. loretta   do not differ appreciably from those of both C. n. neogama   and C. n. euphemia   . A broad blend zone between C. n. neogama   and C. n. euphemia   exists in the southcentral United States, and specimens matching C. loretta   occur throughout this zone, mostly in Texas. We therefore place C. loretta   as a synonym of C. n. neogama (J. E. Smith, 1797)   . Type Locality: hereby restricted to Black Jack Sp[rin]gs, Texas, [ USA] on the basis of the lectotype labels.
