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 or moth.  The 19th century (?) name is "Aluces viridis".
Can you help with this?  I've gone through Biol  Abstr  back to 1985,
and through many 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!
