Type material. Catocala caerulea   : the original description does not state the number of types. Th ere are two male types at the AMNH, and one is designated as lectotype

to clarify application of the name caerulea   . Th e lectotype bears the labels “ Oregon ”, “Type / No. / A.M.N.H.”, “ Catocala   / caerulea / Beut.” The name caerulea   has been treated since Barnes and McDunnough (1917) as a subspecies of nominate C. faustina   , but the name allusa Hulst, 1884   has priority over the name caerulea   for the coastal northwestern subspecies. Type Locality: Oregon, [ USA].
