Brief Summary

Read full entry


A very diverse Palearctic blue genus. The taxonomy of the group is controversial, and many new species, particularly from central Asia, have been described in the past 30 years. Closely-related taxa are differentiated in some instances by chromosomal characters (Lukhtanov et al. 2005). The list here indicates species groups as delineated by Savela, and should be regarded as tentative.
