I'm wondering if you can help with a reference question.  
We're trying to track down the current names, both scientific and popular,
for a butterfly.  The 19th century (?) name is "Aluces viridis".  

Can you help with this?  I've gone through Biological Abstracts back to
1985, and through all of our
butterfly books.  Also, through the Zoological Record and
Nomenclatur Animalium Generum et Subgenerum.

I believe it's in the family Aluctidae.

Please send responses to me, directly!
