This print was indeed designed by Katsukawa Shunchō and is part of a series 'Hotaru ni yoseru koi' (寄蛍恋), published by Tsutaya Jūzaburō c.1785-86. Don't know if the reading of the title is entirely correct but it is mentioned as such in Andreas Marks 'Publishers of Japanese Woodblock Prints: A Compendium' (Publisher 555, P0451, p. 321).
I add an image of another print from this series.
