Then what's the difference between subspecies? Genitalia only? Or not? Such a mess, worse than with machaons.Time to group them similarly to morphos!

Alexandr! Don't mess warm with soft. Dark/light are just colour forms. Ssp. is more about location, geographical item. P. p. stabilis Rothschild & Jordan, 1906 is a spp. spread from Costa Rica to Panama, P. p. asterius Stoll, 1782 — US to Nicaragua. Nominative is described from Cuba.
