Notes:
Cowan (1970: K. svenska VetenskSkad. Handl. 31, No. 5.

The "Rhopalocera aethiopica", as noted in Annot. Rhop. 1968, was not published before the end of April 1899.

The title-page recorded it as submitted in June 1898. The bibliographic Nachtrag was clearly completed after then; the latter portion (: 537) citing several references to 1899. The Index closes with the date "end of April 1899". Publication was as a complete work, not in parts. [&] "1898 to read [1899]", [genus year].

Cowan (1970: 52) stated:-

"1898 . . .41 to read - 1899 . . . 31", [genus author year].

The higher classification used here follows Lamas (2008).
