This tiny label depicts an illegible number (?) and the last name of the individual who collected this particular specimen.
This handwritten label asks who and what this moth may be attributed to. Though not dated, the handwriting and yellowing of the paper indicate its age. It asks after John Obadiah Westwood, who used this specimen as an example in describing the species. The use of two question marks is comical, and indicates the confusion of the poor museum staffer tasked with figuring out the identity of this insect.
This last label, the newest, indicates the name of the butterfly was changed from Lyssa boops to Alcides boops . Unique to this label is its mix of typewritten and handwritten text. Dated 2006, this was the year this species name was updated in the Global Lepidoptera Names Index.
