Photographer's comment: Серо-зелёная форма: Argynnis paphia f. valesina Esper, 1793 присуща в одельных случаях только самкам перламутровки лесной. Классические самки вида: имеют рыже-желтую окраску. Самцы изменчивости не подвержены вовсе: они всегда рыжие: В моей местности доминирует как раз серая форма, а вот классические (рыжие) самки встречаются очень редко.
