Arctiinae, Arctiini , Pericopina

Pericopis principalis Jörgensen, 1935: 119

Current identity. Dysschema boisduvallii (van der Hoeven, 1840) . Synonymized by Becker (2013).

Type Material. Undisclosed number of female paratypes. Holotype lost.

Type locality and label information. [ Paraguay, Trinidad] (information of localities from original description only) .

MACN. No paratypes were found .

Remarks. Jörgensen (1935) said: “…(Como el ejemplar típico ha desaparecido, la descripción anterior incompleta está hecha según la acuarela del señor Schade). […(Since the typical specimen has disappeared, the previous incomplete description is made following Mister Schade′s watercolor painting)…]. This confirms that the descrip- tion of this species was made using only a painting and the type specimen does not exist. The synonymy proposed by Becker (2013) has been confirmed by Vincent & Laguerre (2014) and Lamas (2017).

Pericopis regalis Jörgensen, 1935: 117 ( Fig. 8)
