Hey, why that is pulled down, huh??? The more, these two belong to different groups!!! There are two different genera, Morpho helenor (Cramer, 1776) and Morpho achilles (Linnaeus, 1758).

If I've got it right, it's already classified as a Morpho helenor synonym. Then there is no need in genus, but changing the main name. So what, synonym or?

Genus added.
