Questionable ssp. suellus, Staudinger, 1878: some authors move it to porcellus synonyms, others (e. g., Catalogue of the Lepidoptera of Russia, 2008) consider it as a species itself. Also, the Catalogue says that suellus is expanded in Siberia (Baikal region), so it's a question who can be in Astrakhan region then.
