The original description of Eudamus? yuccae Bdv. & LeC. was presented in the form of a water color painting, "Histoire generale et iconographie des Lepidopteres et des Chenilles de I'Amerique Sep tentrionale, plate 70, 1833". There was no verbal description. Even though Boisduval and LeConte made no reference as to where their drawings came from, it is now known that John Abbot, of Georgia, prepared some of these, including the one of their yuccae.
