Taxonomic history

Originally described as Teinopalpus imperialis (Hope, 1843) f. leucopterus Nose, 1998


In the title and elsewhere in the paper the species name is misspelled as "Teinopalpus impelialis"! The publication date for the journal issue given on the inside back cover is 15th September 1998. As claimed by Sugisawa (1999) in a paper in the journal 'Wallcae' (5: 84-86), however, the actual date of publication of the respective issue of 'Notes on Eurasian Insects' was December 1998.
