Argynnis

provided by wikipedia EN

Argynnis is a genus of butterflies in the family Nymphalidae, one of several groups known as "fritillaries". Its species are commonly found in Europe and Asia.

Systematics

Several current species of Argynnis used to be included in distinct genera, such as Argyreus (for A. hyperbius), Argyronome (for A. laodice, A. ruslana, and A. kuniga), Childrena (forA. childreni and A. zenobia), and Damora (for A. sagana). All of these genera are now viewed as junior synonyms of Argynnis.[1]

Speyeria and Fabriciana used to be viewed as subgenera or synonyms of Argynnis too, but are now considered separate genera, with Speyeria encompassing the earlier Mesoacidalia.
