Many times discussed. Russian names can be arbitrary. If in a nearby village called paradise A. paphia kozlodoem let is called. That's what she and Latin, to a Russian names can be treated ... No.

I agree that the name does not come from biologists.

Although sometimes in a particular area by biologists NAME You just do not understand who or what it is. We in Asia are (biologists and biology) called Siberian ibex tekami and not otherwise. Ask an ordinary hunter of Capricorn, and the majority of whom do not understand it.So with scaly Osman whom the people called trout. I have never heard so char from mountain rivers someone called loach. Pescara all.
I understand the official name (and Latin) is intended to bring order to the system, but it is not clear the mess with Latin NAME, which sometimes exceeds the Number of names given to the people.Hard-nosed individual scientists can not closer to unity.

Leon, in Russian, this large butterfly (forest) perlamutrovka. Other names in Russian, for it is not. Everything else curve translation biologists.
