I certainly wildly sorry that get stuck in such an intelligent conversation, but we see far because we stand on the shoulders of giants ... and they, with respect to this species, considered ... (since 1909.) That Neptis pryeri had several geographical subspecies: Neptis pr. arboretorum Oberth. (China), Neptis pr. andetria Fruhst. (Japan, Primorye), Neptis pr. pryeri Butl. (Japan, Primorye), Neptis pr. koreana Esaki (Korea).... Which is not surprising for a species has enormous variability and dwelt on such a large area including the islands. For me, it remains a mystery why suddenly all these lands instead Prairie Andetriya began to fly. Either the "Giants" were not so great, either ... but in modern Russian lists of this type is listed as - Neptis andetria Fruhstorfer, 1912 = pryeri auct., Kusnezovi Kurentzov, 1949 - Amur speckled hen, according to other sources v1913g. And developing on our spirea (Kurentsov, 1972). Very inconvenient when writing not to see the previous comments ... :(
