If this difference is visible "from the outside" without cooking and preparation, can it (the difference) to take a picture. You just need to get hold of certain items exactly =)

Yes, live butterflies is really needed skill!

PS: I put together a few years ago between a few pieces and Peresechnoy Solonitsevka. Atalia and showed Britomartis. They fly in the same habitats. Atalia ranshe little bit, but basically overlaps years. A couple Britomartis / Aurelius somehow can be distinguished by their appearance by Atal (and even then, there are contentious cases), but from each other, I would not venture.Males of all three species are defined by great genitals. This determination can be done in the field have a living butterfly (preferably loop and a little bit of experience / skill :))

Reliable - no.

A copy of, unfortunately, not yet, but only sfotkatsya. So they have no external differences there?

I think it's still Britomartis - of those edges (Solonitsevka-Peresechnaya) it reliably known (determined from the genitals). Aurelius of the Kharkiv region was significantly not yet known (and indeed its discovery we have quite unlikely). Appearance can be deceptive here. But if this specimen collected - you can find out for sure.I can cook it. :)
