Remarks

Check exact date of publication!! According to Hemming (1934: 194), the text (p. 62) of the description was published in 1805, and should constitute the earliest description of the name. "Napaeae Esp. ist eine etwas größere Gebirgsart dieser Gattung, wozu der Falter, den ich früher Bryoniae nannte, das Weib seyn wird, welches Pap. 407.* dargestellt ist." (Hübner [1806]: 62).
