Clench (1934:210) noted that the exact locality of eleutherae has never been ascertained, and speculated that it "probably exists somewhere in the northern portion of the island." Later, Clench (1952:107) selected Rock Sound as the type locality, noting that Krebs had visited this locality.
Lectotype designated by Baker (1963:206).
Clench (1952:106-107) considered Pupa gubernatoria var β Crosse, 1869 and Cerion (Strophiops) eleutherae drupium Dall, 1905 to be synonyms of C. eleutherae.
