Peter, about the fact that she plum, not Cheremuhovo explained in the system area. I propose here to stop the discussion.
P.S. In exactly the same way I can explain about the cabbage butterfly, Pieris rapae, green-veined white (all the plants in the genus Brassica). It is necessary?
And without the quotes here, but may be only Latin names, because they are obviously correct.

02.10.2014 12:36, Peter Khramov

Russian names put only those that we met somewhere. For example, in the primer. Translation Latin - is not a Russian name. Russian names butterflies written in small letters. Even if they found the names of their own. Quotes there is usually not required. After the decimal point by a space, and before the comma - do not put.Why cabbage called cabbage - it's all idle speculation, which have no value, because "Russian names put only those that we met somewhere."

The contradiction in the fact that commonly called butterfly on Russian on the main host plant, not an afterthought. Example, known to everyone, "cabbage", "Belyanka Cabbage": it is called so, because "kale" (Brassica oleracea) is the main food plant of the genus Brassica.

Basil and contradictions, then there is no, it is quite possible Cheremuhovo call) It is named for pruni old , which owns most of the forage plants caterpillars. A genus - Prunus. To him the main concern and KR - Prunus padus (Prunus Padus), and Prunus domestica (plum home), and Prunus spinosa (the turn ordinary)

It actually plum theclinae instead Cheremuhovo :) Prunus - drain in Latin. Now I will add. Oh, those colloquial names ...

25.06.2012 15:22, Peter Khramov

Yeah, I corrected.
