Type material. Catocala texanae   : French’s original description states “Before closing this I want to speak of the Junctura group. Th e more I see of the Arizona specimens, the more satisfied I am that the Texan form is separate from both that occur in Arizona … The Texan form is a larger insect than either of the Arizona forms, of an even greenish gray, and may be known as Texanae.” No types of C. texanae   have been located in institutional collections, and French may never have labeled any specimens as such. Since the name refers to a member of the taxonomically diffi cult western Nearctic species, a female from PMNH (specimen #ENT 719311) is designated as neotype in order to clarify application of the name texanae   . Th e neotype bears the labels “Uvalde Co / Texas / Stallings & Turner” “ Catocala   / texanae / French / Det. / A.E. Brower 1941.” Type Locality: hereby amended to Uvalde Co[unty, Texas, USA] on the basis of the lectotype label.
