Beccacece HM, Vincent B, Navarro FR - Zookeys (2014)

Bottom Line: In this study we present a catalogue with complete information and photographs of 11 Burmeister type specimens and 10 Berg type specimens of Phaegopterina, Arctiina and Pericopina (Lepidoptera, Erebidae, Arctiinae, Arctiini) housed in the MACN.Lectotypes or holotypes were designated where primary type specimens could be recognized; in some cases we were not able to recognize types.The catalogue also proposes nomenclatural changes and new synonymies: Opharus picturata (Burmeister, 1878), comb. n.; Opharus brunnea Gaede, 1923: 7, syn. n.; Hypocrisias jonesi (Schaus, 1894), syn. n.; Leucanopsis infucata (Berg, 1882), stat. rev.; Paracles argentina (Berg, 1877), sp. rev.; Paracles uruguayensis (Berg, 1886), sp. rev.

ABSTRACT
Carlos G. Burmeister and Carlos Berg were among the most important and influential naturalists and zoologists in Argentina and South America and described 241 species and 34 genera of Lepidoptera. The Museo Argentino de Ciencias Naturales Bernardino Rivadavia (MACN) housed some of the Lepidoptera type specimens of these authors. In this study we present a catalogue with complete information and photographs of 11 Burmeister type specimens and 10 Berg type specimens of Phaegopterina, Arctiina and Pericopina (Lepidoptera, Erebidae, Arctiinae, Arctiini) housed in the MACN. Lectotypes or holotypes were designated where primary type specimens could be recognized; in some cases we were not able to recognize types. The catalogue also proposes nomenclatural changes and new synonymies: Opharus picturata (Burmeister, 1878), comb. n.; Opharus brunnea Gaede, 1923: 7, syn. n.; Hypocrisias jonesi (Schaus, 1894), syn. n.; Leucanopsis infucata (Berg, 1882), stat. rev.; Paracles argentina (Berg, 1877), sp. rev.; Paracles uruguayensis (Berg, 1886), sp. rev.

Figure 5: Labels handwritten by Burmeister with other authors’ names. These are the main labels preceding the specimen series.

Mentions: There are some square labels handwritten by Burmeister that include the last name of Karl Berg as, for instance, the description of Antarctia multifarior (Burmeister, 1878) (Fig. 5). Moreover, on the square label handwritten by Burmeister of Halesidota (sic) picturata (Burmeister, 1878) the abbreviation of both authors’ last names appears as “Bg.” [Berg] and “Burm.” [Burmeister]. In the original description, the genus and specific names are followed by Berg (as in the author’s description) but there are no other previous publications, so the specific name is assigned by Burmeister. The same problem occurs with Ecpantheria anomala (Burmeister, 1883); on the label handwritten by Burmeister, the abbreviation “Kk.” [Kinkelin] appears as well as the original description (Fig. 5). Possibly, he placed the name in honor of the collector. In his publication, Burmeister indicated the author and year of the original description below the genus and specific name only if he included a redescription.
