What's with that check?

Evgeny! These items are being boiled now ;) If it turns out to be something different, I'll correct this. Athalia in Russia usually lives in more dry statias, and britomartis prefers humid meadows. Anyway, devil knows. Will check it up.

Boiled? (Judging by what's seen on this photo I'd stake on athalia, but it's a guesswork anyway...)
