[BACK TO GUY'S BUTTERFLIES]                    

Checklist of European Butterflies (including N. Africa, the Canaries, the Azores and Madeira)
 

This list is not intended to be authoritative in any way, but simply a useful resource. The names reflect choices made by recent authors, including in particular Leraut (Butterflies of Europe and Neighbouring Regions, 2016) and Bozano (Guide to the Butterflies of the Palearctic Region, ongoing series publication) - though these two do not always agree with each other. I have consulted other sources, printed and online, too.

Doherty 1891
All European species of this genus were formerly classified in the now obsolete genus Maculinea Eecke 1915. Studies have shown that if this genus is preserved for the European species it is not cladal. Therefore, despite strong emotional support for the iconic name Maculinea, logic and consistency demand classifying all former Maculinea species as Phengaris, which has priority.
