933069.0010415Lacinipolia strigicollis (Wallengren, 1860) – Collared Arches

[T] Gary McDonald
Distribution: Canada: BC; USA: WA, ID, OR, CA. As of 3/1/2022 there are no barcoded strigicollis from east of CA and south of ID.
Type locality (strigicollis): California.
Type locality (alboguttata): Oregon.
Type locality (dilatata): New Mexico.
Type locality (illaudabilis): Vancouver Island, CA.
Type locality (restora): Kaslo, BC.
Similar Species:
  • Lacinipolia bucketti is sympatric though out the range of strigicollis and is apparently best separated by DNA barcode. Dissection may not be conclusive.
  • Lacinipolia bucketti
  • Lacinipolia olivacea petita
  • Pinned specimens of related species. (Hint: select View by Region on the related species page.)
Synonymy: Hecatera strigicollis Wallengren, 1860
Mamestra alboguttata Grote, 1876
Mamestra dilatata Smith, 1900
Mamestra illaudabilis Grote, 1875
Mamestra restora Smith, 1910
Taxonomic Notes: Lacinipolia strigicollis (Wallengren, 1860) includes as a synonym 10416 Lacinipolia illaudabilis in Mustelin (2006), Zootaxa, 1278: 39.

The holotype of L. strigicollis, believed to be lost in Mustelin (2006), was relocated in the Swedish Museum of Natural History in 2022 (see image below). The holotype seems to most resemble L. bucketti Selman & Leuschner, 2001 and L. olivacea petita (Smith, 1901) and apparently does not support the synonymy of illaudabilis. The paratypes of petita and bucketti are relatively inseparable by DNA sequencing.
