chariclea montinus (Scudder, 1863)
Distribution and Larval Foodplants:
(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.
