Wiltshire (1952: 195): “Holo-Type and two Para-Types : three ♂♂, hatched from pupae on 14, 15.xi.50. The two earlier ones, para-types, spoilt themselves. The larvae had been found in April 1950 on flowers of Scrophularia variegata Bieb. (kindly determined by the Botanical Section, British Museum) growing on vertical cliff-faces in Tang-Ab gorge near Firuzabad, circa 4250 feet Fars, South-west Persia ; on the same foodplant were found in 1941 the larvae which produced the only known specimen of Cuculia faucicola [sic, recte Cucullia] Wilts. 1943, but these were not found again in 1950 ; the search for them yielded a different new species, just described.”
