scientific name

Hemithea Duponchel, 1829
status

 

Hemithea Duponchel, 1829 

Hemithea aestivaria  ( Hübner, 1789)

Hemithea aestivaria alboundulata  (Hedemann, 1879) ("stat. nov.", followed by "syn. rev.")

Notes

Hemithea alboundulata  was a junior synonym of H. aestivaria  until Leraut (2009) elevated it to subspecies. Müller et al. (2019) found the justification for this taxonomic change to be too vague and, consequently, revived its status as a synonym of H. aestivaria  .
