Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEditor's comment Nomen nudum. Grube (1878:106) further described only his recombined Leocrates cupreus (Grube, 1867), and did not describe a subspecies, L. cupreus iridis. The "subspecies" variant of the name, rather than the correct L. cupreus, appears in the catalogues of Hartman (1959:187) and is repeated in Pleijel (1998:160), but there is no such taxon. The misinterpretation, origin unknown, is of the parenthetical note after the heading in bold for "Leocrates cupreus" where not in bold Grube has the words "(var. L. lridis)" [see the attached image of Grube's printed page]. It is clear from two mentions in the following Latin text that this is indicating the close similarity to the preceding species in Grube's monograph, also from Philippines, which Grube had named Leocrates Iris (Latin iris -iridis meaning rainbow). Conclusively "Leocrates cupreus" is the species name given by Grube in the species list on p.iv of the introduction [G. Read, November 2013] [details]
