Type material. Catocala allusa   : the original description does not state the number of types. A female type is at the USNM, and is designated as lectotype to clarify applica-

tion of the name allusa   . Th e lectotype bears the labels “Was. T.”, “ Catocala   / allusa / Orig. Type. Hulst”, “Type No. / 33992 / U.S. N.M.” Th e geographic distribution of Catocala allusa   is broadly parapatric with that of Catocala faustina Strecker, 1873   in northwestern North America; C. allusa   blends with C. faustina cleopatra Strecker, 1874   in northwestern California, and with C. faustina faustina   in the Rocky Mountains of Idaho, Wyoming and Montana. Th e larvae of C. allusa   and C. faustina   also do not differ appreciably, and so we place C. allusa   as a subspecies of Catocala faustina   Streck- er, 1873. We refer material from the coastal areas of northern California, Oregon, Washington and British Columbia to C. faustina allusa   . Type Locality: Was[hington] T [erritory, USA].
