Maynard and Clapp in Maynard, 1921b:149, Plate 45, figs. 3, 4 (Plate 45 never issued); Maynard, 1924b:; Maynard, 1924c:6.; Gould & Woodruff, 1986:477.
There are 1,549 paralectotypes, including MCZ 76331, MCZ 118156, and USNM 420059 (50 specimens).
The binomen S. phoenicea was used as a nomen nudum (Maynard, 1919b:36). The taxon description used the spelling S. phoenecia, as did the sales catalog (Maynard, 1924b?:). Maynard (1924c:6) listed S. phoenecia as extinct in 1924, due to burning of vegetation prior to cultivation. Gould and Woodruff (1986:477) regarded this taxon to be a synonym of Cerion gubernatorium (Crosse, 1869).
