In 2010 Christine Jackson and Ann Datta came across a remarkable set of late 18th century butterfly paintings long held in the Fellows’ Library at Winchester College. How did these images, originally made in Dartford by the daughter of a famous ornithologist, come to be in Winchester? In 1817, her brother was declared bankrupt at Romsey, Hampshire....

The names of all the species of butterflies described by Linnaeus under “Papilio” are researched. Of the 305 names treated, 243 (c. 80%) are currently valid as specific (241) or subspecific (2), 29 are junior synonyms, 14 are invalid (one of these applying to a fake), and for 13 the identity is unknown or uncertain. Six species of moths misidentifi...

Two distinct species of herminiine noctuids that occur sympatrically in parts of southern Europe and North Africa are currently known as Pechipogo plumigeralis Hübner, [ 1825] and Polypogon crinalis (Treitschke, 1829). However, these names are synonymous, being based upon the same Hübner figure (that of Pyralis barbalis Clerck sensu Hübner, 1796)....
