Transactions of the American Entomological Society, Vol. 3 free pdf Excerpt from Transactions of the American Entomological Society, Vol. 3 In 1797, Abbot (Insects Georgia), figured without description as C-aureum the species before given by Cramer. Mr. Lintner determines that both Cramer's and Abbot's figures represent the male of that one of these two species which has a red upper surface and much falcated forewings, in contradistinction to that with black hind wings, and slightly or not at all falcated forewings, which he calls Umbrosa. To avoid confusion, I will, for the present, speak of these as Caureum (Fab.) and Umbrosa. At first glance Abbot's figures seem to represent Umbrota. But after careful comparisons with many individuals of both species, I think Mr. Liutner's conclusions correct. There is a great variation. Some Interrogation it have very dark brown hind wings, and may well have stood for Abbot's figures, which are coarsely executed. The outlines of both wings and falcation of fore wings, as Mr. Lintner points out, are those of Caureum, not Umbrosa. On the under side the coloring is faithful to neither but nearest C-aurcum. The same remarks will apply to Cramer, whose figures, also, are very coarse. In fact, nothing would be lost by rejecting all these figures. In 1798, Fabricius (Supp't. p. 424), for the first time mentions and describes P. Interrogationit, vis- "alia caudatia fulvis nigro maculatis, subtus gluitcit: striga punctorum nigrorum, posticis C-aurco notutis. Habitat in America boreali. Nimis affirm P. C-aureo at paullo major et alaesubtus glaucee ttriga punctorum nigrorum." Wings tailed, fulvous, spotted with black, beneath glaucous (i. e. a blue or green inclining to grey or white) with a trantverse band (striga) of black points. Extremely like P. C-aureum bat a little larger and the wings beneath glaucous with a transverse band of black points. Now Fabricius could not have said that his Interrogationis was "extremely like" Angelica Cramer, (that is, C-aureum, Linnae us, ) for as stated, the two differ materially and unmistakably. But the words glaucae striga punctorum mgrorum, twice repeated, mark the importance attached to those characters. They were in fact the characters relied on as at once determining the new species from his C-aureum, thereby also determining this C-aureum itself, and with the words paullo major apply completely to the female of Umbrosa. This alone of the males and females of the two species can he called glaucous, that word well expressing the color by which the wings are suffused.
