Subtribe Calycopidina   (formerly Lamprospilus   section)

Calycopis beon (Stoll, 1780)  

Thecla beon (Cramer)   : Crowfoot (1893, no. 137)

Tmolus beon (Stoll)   : Kaye (1904, no. 142), Williams (1920), Williams (1930), Robbins and Small (1981)

Calycopis beon (Cramer)   : Kaye (1921, no. 218), Barcant (1970, no. 242)

Robbins (2004) treats this name as a nomen dubium because there are no extant types, and the name cannot be identified definitively from the original illustration. The name has been used as a catchall for several species of similar Lycaenidae   in Trinidad. Kaye (1904, 1921) lists Tmolus bactra   (a separate species listed above), T. isobeon Butler   (a separate species not found in Trinidad, but close to C. origo   ) and Thecla politus H.H. Druce   (a synonym of K. syllis   ) as synonyms, but was aware that several species might be involved. Subsequently, he makes it clear that he considers the female of K. syllis   (as politus   ) to be C. beon ( Kaye 1908)   . Comstock (1914) lists four species ‘in beon   group’. It is clear from Barcant’s collection that he too included diverse species under this name. Calycopis bactra   , C. susanna   and C. vesulus   have consistently been treated as C. beon   , but one or both sexes of K. syllis   , C. cinniana   , C. cissusa   , C. mimas   , C. atnius   , and C. bellera   might also have been lumped together as C. beon   in Trinidad collections.

Calycopis caulonia (Hewitson, 1877)  

Antrissima varicolor K. Johnson   : Johnson (1991a) [synonym]

Johnson (1991a) illustrates the male, female and their genitalia. He includes Trinidad in the distribution of this genus; however his description of the species included no reference to Trinidad. We have seen no specimens from Trinidad and discount this reference to it occurring there.
