Remarks

"Remarks. We have been unable to locate any Linnaean material. The taxon was treated as the North American subspecies of Phoebis sennae by Brown & Heineman (1972: 303), and this decision was followed by Hodges et al. (1983). However, we follow Smith, Miller & Miller (1994) who treat eubule as a junior synonym of sennae (Linnaeus). See sennae." (Honey & Scoble 2001: 324)
