Pieris  ERIPHIA Godart, in Latreille & Godart, 1819

Encyclopédie Méthodique Histoire Naturelle [Zoologie] 9. Entomologie i –328 [157–158]. Current accepted combination: Pinacopteryx eriphia eriphia (Godart, in Latreille & Godart, 1819)  (see Larsen, 2005).

Syntype, male, pinned: Specimen data: “Eriphia” [Handwritten (by Godart)]. “ TYPE ” [Handwritten on oval pink label]. “Dufresne” [Printed] verso “ Pieris  | Eriphia | 28” [Handwritten] “Dufresne | 1936-50 | 67” verso “Herpaenia eriphia | Godt. |? TYPE ” [Handwritten (by Grimshaw) on mauve paper]. Remarks: This is a specimen from the Dufresne Collection labelled by Godart and is thus a syntype. The original description does not specify the number of specimens on which it was based or from where they originated  .

Pieris GIDICA  Godart, in Latreille & Godart, 1819

Encyclopédie Méthodique Histoire Naturelle [Zoologie] 9. Entomologie i –328 [131]. Current accepted combination: Belenois gidica gidica (Godart, in Latreille & Godart, 1819)  (see Larsen, 2005).

Syntype, male, pinned: Specimen data: “Gidica” [Handwritten (by Godart) on coarse paper]. “Type” [Handwritten on oval pink label]. “Dufresne” [Printed] verso “ Pieris  | gidica | 21” [Handwritten]. “Dufresne | 1936- 50 | 65” verso “ Pieris gidica  | Godart | TYPE ” [Handwritten (by Grimshaw) on mauve paper]. Remarks: This specimen from the Dufresne collection was labelled as gidica  by Godart and thus is a syntype. Country of origin of this specimen is unknown. A colour illustration of this specimen is given in Grimshaw (1897, figure 4)  .

Pieris  ILAIRE Godart, in Latreille & Godart, 1819

Encyclopédie Méthodique Histoire Naturelle [Zoologie] 9. Entomologie i –328 [142]. Junior subjective synonym of Glutophrissa drusilla (Cramer, 1777)  (see Lamas, 2004).

Paralectotype, male, pinned: Specimen data: “ilaire” [Handwritten (by Godart)]. “ TYPE ” [Oval, pink label]. “Dufresne” [Printed] verso “ Pieris  | ilaire | 44” [Handwritten]. “Dufresne | 1936-50 | 68” verso “Appias drusilla | Cram. | CO- | TYPE? of Pieris  | ilaire Godt.” [Handwritten (by Grimshaw)]. Remarks : This specimen from the Dufresne collection was labelled as ilaire by Godart. It is thus one of the original type series. Poey (1832) states that the material named by Godart was “au Cabinet du Jardin des Plantes (i.e., the Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle ( MNHN), in Paris.” Godart gave the country of origin of the syntypes as “Brésil” ( Brazil). Abadjiev (2005) designated as lectotype a male in MNHN  .

Pieris JOSEPHINA Godart  , in Latreille & Godart, 1819

Encyclopédie Méthodique Histoire Naturelle [Zoologie] 9. Entomologie i –328 [158]. Current accepted combination: Ganyra josephina (Godart, in Latreille & Godart, 1819)  (see Lamas, 2004).

Syntypes, 1 male and 1 female, pinned: Specimen data: Specimen reg. no. 63: “joséphine. mâle. | josephina” [Handwritten (by Godart) on coarse bluish paper]. “Dufresne” [Printed] verso “ Pieris  | josephina | ♂ 40” [Handwritten]. “ TYPE ” [Oval pink label]. “Dufresne | 1936.50 | 63” verso “ Pieris josephina  | Godart | TYPE ♂ ” [Handwritten (by Grimshaw) on mauve paper]. Specimen reg. no. 64: “joséphine. fem.” [Handwritten (by Godart)]. “Dufresne” [Printed] verso “ Pieris  | josephina | ♀ 41” [Handwritten]. “ TYPE ” [Oval pink label]. “Dufresne | 1936- 50 | 64” verso “ Pieris josephina  | Godart | TYPE ♀ ” [Handwritten (by Grimshaw) on mauve paper]. Remarks: Originally described from “des individus” in the Dufresne Collection. The original catalogue of the collection indicates that  1 male and 2 females were present. These two specimens from that collection, bearing Godart’s identification labels are thus two of the original three syntypes. Country of origin of syntypes not specified, although Bridges (1988b) gives “Hispaniola, probably Port au Prince, Haiti ” as the nominotypical subspecies is now known to be endemic to Hispaniola ( Haiti and Dominican Republic). A specimen in the Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle, Paris is labelled as a syntype but cannot be supported and bears a label to that effect written by Dr. P.Viette (viz.” Type ss doute à Edimbourg.”) (N.T.Hong in litt. 27.ii 1997; Abadjiev, 2005)  .

Hesperocharis  LAMONTI Kaye, 1920

Entomologist’s Record & Journal of Variation 32, 187–189 [188]. Current accepted combination: Hesperocharis nera (Hewitson, 1852) ssp. lamonti Kaye, 1920  (see Bridges, 1988b).

Holotype, male, pinned: Specimen data: “ M.Diable 6|4|17” [Handwritten (by Lamont)]. “Lamont Collection 1950-16” [Printed] with label with “ TYPE ” [Handwritten in red ink], glued to it. “ Hesperocharis  lamonti Kaye” [Handwritten Lamont cabinet label]. Remarks : The original description states “ Trinidad, Morni Diable 2♂♂ 6-iv.- 1917 (Lamont) Type in coll. Lamont. ” Only one male (the holotype) is still present. The whereabouts of the other male is unknown. 

Pieris  LIMNORIA Godart, in Latreille & Godart, 1819

Encyclopédie Méthodique Histoire Naturelle [Zoologie] 9. Entomologie i –328 [144–145]. Junior subjective synonym of Melete lycimnia (Cramer, 1777) ssp. flippantha (Fabricius, 1793)  (see Lamas, 2004).

Paralectotype, male, pinned: Specimen data: “Limnorie mâle | ou | lycimnia Cram.  ” [Handwritten (by Godart)]. “Dufresne” [Printed] verso “ Pieris  limnoria | 45” [Handwritten]. “ TYPE ” [Oval pink label]. “Dufresne | 1936-50 | 69” verso “Daptonoura | lycimnia Cram.  |?CO-TYPE of | limnoria Godart” [Handwritten (by Grimshaw)]. Remark s: This specimen was present in the Dufresne collection when it was studied by Godart. The ambivalence in the label indicates that Godart appreciated the close relationship of his new species with Cramer’s lycimnia  . Another male limnoria has also survived in the Dufresne collection although Godart’s opinion on its identity is unknown so it is best not considered as a syntype. The country of origin of the syntypes was given as “Brésil [ Brazil].” A coloured illustration of the above paralectotype is given by Grimshaw (1897, figure 3). Abadjiev (2005) designated as lectotype a male in MNHN  .

Pieris  PHISADIA Godart  , in Latreille & Godart, 1819

Encyclopédie Méthodique Histoire Naturelle [Zoologie] 9. Entomologie i –328 [132]. Current accepted combination: Colotis phisadia phisadia (Godart, in Latreille & Godart, 1819)  (see Larsen, 2005).

Holotype, male, pinned: Specimen data: “phisadia” [Handwritten (by Godart)]. “Dufresne” [Printed] on verso “ Pieris  | Phisadia | 29” [Handwritten]. “Dufresne | 1936-50 | 72”on verso “Teracolus | phisadia Godart  | TYPE ” [Handwritten (by Grimshaw)]. Remarks: Originally described from a single specimen in the Dufresne Collection. This is that specimen and thus the holotype. Country of origin not specified. 

Pieris  PYLOTIS Godart, in Latreille & Godart, 1819 

Encyclopédie Méthodique Histoire Naturelle [Zoologie] 9. Entomologie i –328 [158]. Current accepted combination: Glennia pylotis Godart, in Latreille & Godart, 1819  (see Lamas, 2004).

Paralectotype, female, pinned: Specimen data: “pylo”. [Handwritten (by Godart)]. “Dufresne” [Printed] on verso “ Pieris  | Pylo | 42” [Handwritten]. Remarks : This specimen from the Dufresne collection was labelled as pylo by Godart. The reason for the abbreviated form of the name on the identity label is unclear. This syntype is directly traceable to Godart. In the original description the country of origin is given as “Brésil” [ Brazil]. This species was omitted by Grimshaw (1897). Abadjiev (2005) designated as lectotype a male in MNHN  .

Pieris  SALACIA Godart  , in Latreille & Godart, 1819

Encyclopédie Méthodique Histoire Naturelle [Zoologie] 9. Entomologie i –328 [144]. Current accepted combination: Melete salacia salacia (Godart, in Latreille & Godart, 1819)  (see Lamas, 2004).

Syntype, female, pinned: Specimen data: “Salacia fem.” [Handwritten (by Godart)]. “Type” [Oval, pink label]. “Dufresne” [Printed] on verso “ Pieris  | Salacia | 46” [Handwritten]. “Dufresne | 1936-50 | 70” on verso “Daptonoura | salacia Godart  |?CO-TYPE [Handwritten (by Grimshaw)]. Remarks: This specimen from the Dufresne collection was labelled as salacia  by Godart. It is thus one of the original type series which consisted of at least 1 male and 1 female. The country of origin of the syntypes is not stated, but Bridges (1988b) gives the type locality as “ Santa [sic] Domingo ” as the nominotypical subspecies is now known to be endemic to Hispaniola ( Haiti and Dominican Republic). 

Papilio  TEREAS Godart, in Latreille & Godart, 1819

Encyclopédie Méthodique Histoire Naturelle [Zoologie] 9. Entomologie i –328 [38]. Current accepted combination: Archonias brassolis (Fabricius, 1776) ssp. tereas (Godart, in Latreille & Godart, 1819)  (see Lamas, 2004).

Syntype, male, pinned: Specimen data: “téréas” [Handwritten (by Godart)]. “25” [Round white label]. “Type” [Oval pink label]. Dufresne label not present although Grimshaw (1897) considered this specimen part of the Dufresne collection which may have been still intact at that time. “Dufresne | 1936-50 | 59” on verso “ Archonias  tereas | Godart |? TYPE ” [Handwritten (by Grimshaw)]. Remarks: This specimen from the Dufresne collection was labelled by Godart. It is thus a syntype. The original description says that this species was “rapporté du Brésil [ Brazil] par M. de Lalande fils.” 

Pieris  VENILIA Godart  , in Latreille & Godart, 1819

Encyclopédie Méthodique Histoire Naturelle [Zoologie] 9. Entomologie i –328 [121]. Current accepted combination: Ixias venilia venilia (Godart, in Latreille & Godart, 1819)  (see Bridges, 1988b).

Syntype, male, pinned: Specimen data: “Vénilie. mâle” [Handwritten (by Godart) on coarse bluish paper]. “Type” [Oval pink label]. “Dufresne [Printed] | Venatrix \ Wallace” [Handwritten] on verso “ Pieris  | venilie | ♂ 5” [Handwritten]. “Dufresne | 1936-50 | 71” on verso “ Ixias  | venilia Godart  |?CO-TYPE” [Handwritten (by Grimshaw) on mauve paper]. Remarks: This specimen from the Dufresne collection was labelled by Godart. It was thus one of the original type series. The whereabouts of the other syntypes is unknown. The country of origin of the syntypes was given as “l’île de Java ”. [ Isle of Java]. A brief description of this species was given on p.105 of Latreille & Godart but the species name was only given in French and is thus unavailable, but a full and proper account is on p.121  .
