Caucasus removed.

15.01.2011 9:48, Vasiliy Feoktistov

Yes, that should be removed (label definitely sucks). Change to: caught location unknown.

15.01.2011 9:32, Dmitriy Pozhogin

Please, remove Caucasus.

Back to "identified successfully".

According to Tuzov and Co, that is Amur and Ussuri regions; central and NE. China, Korea.

Same here, however sometimes I've just got such "naked" ones :)

14.01.2011 17:08, Dmitriy Pozhogin

Sorry for pickiness, but for me personally labels are the most important things to believe in.

14.01.2011 17:06, Vasiliy Feoktistov

Thanks, Russian Far East, apparently?

14.01.2011 17:03, Dmitriy Pozhogin

Yes, Limenitis amphyssa, label is wrong.

14.01.2011 17:00, Vasiliy Feoktistov

Dmitry, got its underside (see mail).

14.01.2011 13:10, Vasiliy Feoktistov

Good, I'll look it through and upload underside later.

14.01.2011 13:07, Peter Khramov

Goes to "uncertain" then, waiting for new opinions.

14.01.2011 5:01, Vasiliy Feoktistov

Later will shoot its label (if I find), could be wrong.

14.01.2011 5:00, Dmitriy Pozhogin

I think, that is Limenitis populi female, dark.

Limenitis amphyssa in the Caucasus??? Holy god! Underside, please.

Shot goes to Limenitis amphyssa.

30.06.2009 10:09, Vasiliy Feoktistov There is some mistake about identifying of this species, I know the right name of it.

Yes, you are right, this one is Limenitis amphyssa, Menetries 1859 (

29.06.2009 1:08, Eugene Karolinskiy There is some mistake about identifying of this species but I'm not sure of the right name of it.
