STI taxonomic comments: 
"The title-page of the work by Rothschild & Jordan is dated March 1903. If the title-page is date were correct the date of publication would be 1903 March [31], for Article 21(b)(i) of the Code states that the date of publication is to be interpreted as 'the last day of the stated month, when month and year, but not the day, are specified'. However, subsequent evidence suggests that the title-page date is incorrect, for Tutt, 1903 May 15, Entomologist's Rec. J. Var. 15 (5): 138, stated that the work by Rothschild & Jordan 'was published on April 21st [1903]'" (Fletcher & Nye, 1982: 40) (STI 17917).
