Our summer fundraiser has arrived, and we need your help!
We depend on donations to keep Butterflies and Moths of North America online and free. If everyone who uses this resource makes a donation, we could cover our ongoing costs, develop new features, upgrade the system, and maybe even remove those pesky ads. Please make a one-time or recurring donation to show your support for this valuable source of information. Thank you!
Coordinator notes: Now <i>Kocakina fidelis</i> (Grote, 1874), formerly in the genus <i>Himella</i> Grote, 1874, a junior homonym of <i>Himella</i> Dallas 1852, is transferred to <i>Kocakina</i> (Özdikmen & Seven, 2006) (replacement name), a genus which includes as a synonym <i>Orthimella</i> (Schmidt & Lafontaine, 2018) (unnecessary replacement name).
This name was synonymized with <i>Himella intractata</i> (Morrison, 1874) in the 1983 Hodges Checklist which regarded the publication year of <i>fidelis</i> to be 1875. The synonymy was reversed in Poole (1989) - Lafontaine & Schmidt (2010), ZooKeys, 40:154.
