Material examined

Lectotype (here designated, Fig. 17 View Fig 17 G–H)

BRAZIL: ♂, MNHN, labels: [Capte. | des mines] [ MUSÉUM PARIS | Ouest Capte | des Mises] [ B. nanus   | Cat. Mus. | Brésil. | M. A. de St. Hilaire] [LECTOTYPE | Barybas nanus   | Blanchard, 1850 | des. J. Fuhrmann & | F. Z. Vaz-de-Mello, 2014].

Paralectotype

BRAZIL: ♂, MNHN, labels: [Capte. | des mines] [ MUSÉUM PARIS | Ouest Capte | des Mises] [PARALECTOTYPE | Barybas nanus   | Blanchard, 1850 | ♂ | des. J. Fuhrmann & | F. Z. Vaz-de-Mello, 2014].

Syntype of Hercitis pygmaea   ( Fig. 21 View Fig 21 G–K)

Remarks

The present study proposes the synonymy of H. pygmaea   (type species of Hercitis   ) with B. nana   (type species of Barybas Blanchard   ). See generic remarks above for historical and taxonomic comments. The syntype of H. pygmaea   is being studied by Holger Dombrow (pers. comm.).
