Andrey, I met such names only once on some trade website, I mean gahua and phadena, and gahua/phadena for blue-brown variation. This is wrong. I've got 6 differently coloured cisseis, some of which are mixed, gahua or phanodemus. Here's some info from other sources:

Morpho cisseis C. Felder & R. Felder, 1860 TL: Brazil (Am)

Morpho cisseis cisseis C. Felder & R. Felder, 1860 TL: Brazil (Am) M T

Morpho cisseis gahua Blandin, 1988 TL: Peru M T

Morpho cisseis phanodemus Hewitson, 1869 TL: Ecuador M T

How come it's called Morpho cesseis? Nothing alike anywhere. :) Morpho cisseis

The blue variation of this ssp is called Morpho cesseis gahua f. gahua whilst blue-brown is called f. phadena.

Ssp and variation name may be noted on upload. Just not in the field "Species name" but "Taxonomy specification".

I already sorted that out and moved where it belonged.
Igor, please don't notice ssp on upload, better to add it later in your personal account.
