Synonymy

(From: A Catalogue of the Butterflies of the United States and Canada, Jonathan P. Pelham)

Genus Boloria Moore, 1900

Lepid. Ind. 4(48): 243-244. Type-species: Papilio pales [Schiffermüller], 1775, Ankündung eines syst. Werkes Schmett. Wiener Gegend: 177, no. 8, by original designation. The genus-level synonymy adopted herein is derived from Grey (1989), J. Lepid. Soc. 43(1): 2, Aubert et al. (1996), C. R. Acad. Sci. (Ser. 3) Sci. Vie 319(7): 647-651, and Simonsen (2005), Syst. Entomol. 30(4): 653-665.

 

euphrosyne group Gorbunov, 2001

Butts. Russia Class.: 192.

 

Boloria chariclea (Schneider, 1794)

Neu. Mag. f. Leibhaber Entomol. 5: 588-589.

Original Combination: Papilio Chariclea

Type Locality: “Lappland” implied from the title of paper.

Types: Location of type(s) not known, probably lost.

The arrangement of North American taxa in this group follows Pike (1981), J. Res. Lepid. 18(3): 156, and J. Shepard (1998), Syst. W. N. Am. Butts. (59): 727-730. It is probable that this assemblage in North America actually consists of two species, but it is not possible to diagnose these at present.

 

Boloria chariclea ingens (W. Barnes & McDunnough, 1918)

Contr. Nat. Hist. Lepid. N. Am. 4(2): 71, 180, pl. 11, figs. 5 ♂ D (holotype), 6 ♂ V.

Types: Holotype in USNM.

                         =    ‡”martini” (Gunder, 1934)

Can. Entomol. 66(6): 127-128.

Original Combination: Brenthis helena ingens tr. f. martini

Type Locality: “Teton trail, Teton Mts., Teton County, Wyoming (just south of the ingens type locality)”

Types: “Holotype” in AMNH.
