As noted in the Introduction, Pelham intentionally diverges from the Code's provisions on gender agreement (Articles 31 & 34), following original orthography instead
Pelham (2008:396) comments as follows: "The family-group name Hipparchiinae Swainson, 1820, Zool. Illustr. (1)1(1): pl. 11, unnumbered text, is senior to Satyrinae. Code Article 23.2 clearly states that if the application of the Principle of Priority disturbs stability or universality and causes confusion that existing usage is to be maintained. The long and consistent use of Satyridae overwhelms priority, and the traditional listing is maintained"

ITIS taxonomy is based on the latest scientific consensus available,
and is provided as a general reference source for interested parties.
However, it is not a legal authority for statutory or regulatory purposes.
While every effort has been made to provide the most reliable and up-to-date
information available, ultimate legal requirements with respect to species
are contained in provisions of treaties to which the United States is a
party, wildlife statutes, regulations, and any applicable notices that have
been published in the Federal Register. For further information on U.S.
legal requirements with respect to protected taxa, please contact the
