Verz. bekannt. Schmett. (4): 58. Type-species: Papilio norna Thunberg, 1791, Ins. Suec. (2): 36-37, pl. 2, figs. 11, [11a], by designation of Butler (1868), Entomol. Mon. Mag. 4(45): 196.

Oeneis bore (Esper, 1789)

Die Schmett. 1(suppl.)(1)(3/4): 37-38, pl. 100, fig. 1 (1789); [7]: 76-79, pl. 108 (cont. 63), fig. 1 ♀ D&V [1798].

Original Combination: Papilio (Dan[aus]. Cand[idus].) Bore

Type Locality: “Lappland”

Types: Type(s) probably lost.

The determination of Esper's publication dates by Heppner (1981), Arch. Nat. Hist. 10(2): 251-254, gave priority to Esper's description over that of Schneider (1792), Neu. Mag. Liebhaber Entomol. 4: 415, 445; 5: 585 (1793), which is often listed.

Ferris et al. (1983), Can. Entomol. 115(7): 838, and Scott (1986), Butts. N. Am.: 249-250, no. 130, suggested that taygete is conspecific with bore.

            =    fortunatus (Fabricius, 1793)

Entomol. Syst. 3(1): 214, no. 670.

Original Combination: P[apilio]. S[atyri]. Fortunatus

Type Locality: “Lapponia” [Lapland, Norway and Sweden]

Types: Syntypes in ZMUC.

E. Doubleday (1844), List Spec. Lepid. Ins. Coll. Brit. Mus. 1: 123, was the first to consider this name a synonym of O. bore.

            =    crambis (Freyer, [1844])

Neuer Beitr. Schmett. 5(74): 99-100, no. 783, pl. 440, figs. 3 ♂ D&V, 4 ♀ D&V.

Original Combination: Hipparchia Crambis

Type Locality: “Lappland” [Lapland, Norway and Sweden]

Types: There may be syntypes in BMNH or ZSMC, or they may be lost.

This name has been employed in different ways in the past, but it is clear from the figures, type locality, description, and Freyer’s comparison with bore that this name belongs here.
