thanks for another pic. This group of blues often poses serious problems.
I already had written some lines about differerent phenotypes of L. hispana (France vs. Spain).
But now, before I was going to post and discuss them, I suddenly felt that it could be much more useful, to maybe ask for more photos (males and females from that population).
If you could do more photos (no compulsion, do as you please), we at Lepiforum all could see (enjoy, learn about) a cross-section of phenotypes of a Lysandra-population from a Basque province. That would be great, especially as they come from within the contact zone of at least 3(4?) Lysandra-taxa.
Did anyone note, that Garcia-Barros et al. (2013, Fauna Iberica 37: Papilionoidea) show pictures of almost whiteish (!) L. hispana in their book (almost like L. albicans). Superficially they have almost nothing in common with our Bestimmungshilfe-hispana!
If the scientific term "Zwillingsart" (sibling species) is correctly applied, the TRUE "sibling species" of L. hispana is L. albicans, and NOT L. coridon.
Thanks much for your contributions, Susana.
Keep up the good work:
