The origin of the genus name Eacles
is a real puzzle. Perhaps it is a misspelling or a typographical error. Some possible intended words (speculative) are Eocles/Eokles
--the latter are, perhaps, surnames. Perhaps related to Eteocles
?? There is, unfortunately, no entry in the Oxford English Dictionary
for this name.
The original publication (from Lepidoptera and other life forms
) is Eacles
Hübner, ; Verz. bek. Schmett. (10): 153.
