You are right!
Obviously Shôriya Aragorô took his information from Samuel Leiter's „New Kabuki Encyclopedia“, page 38. But my Kunisada catalogue includes four prints with the name Bandō Shūchō (with two writings „秀調“ and „秀訥“ and datable to 1833/35). One is a fan print dated to 1833 (Waseda no. 201-2132). And depicted is surely Mitsugorō IV.
