Corythalia peckhami Petrunkevitch, 1914

No. 4164 Dominicana

Source: Petrunkevitch A. 1914b. Attidae of the Yale Dominica Expedition. Journ. N.Y. Ent. Soc., 22: 330 T. 12 F. 15-20.

Note: Drawings resemble rather Peckham - Dr. GB, Edwards explains what happened (from a private letter of March 22nd, 2004) "Petrunkevitch (1914) explains what happened in his introduction. Professor H. W. Foote collected the specimens and sent them to Peckham. Peckham had identified most as new species, but unfortunately died before the manuscript could be written. Mrs. Peckham had hired J. H. Emerton (who made many drawings for the Peckhams) as the illustrator for these species, so you were correct in noting that they looked like Peckham drawings. After Peckham's death, Prof. Foote arranged to send the specimens to Petrunkevitch, who made the actual descriptions."
