First published at the rank of variety, and with the subspecific epithet spelled maderæ but included here as a subspecies Anthophora quadrifasciata maderae Dours, 1869 per ICZN Article 45.6.4 and ICZN 18.104.22.168
Dours attributed taxon authorship posthumously to Sichel on page 6 of his 1869 "Monographie Iconographique du Genre Anthophora Lat. (Extrait des Mémoires de la Société linnéenne du Nord de la France.)" Sichel's role in describing the species is unclear with respect to the name and the publication, and therefore does not satisfy the criteria necessary to make someone other than the author of the work (Dours) the author of the name as specified in ICZN 50.1.1
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
