Abstract

Reexamination of the dates of publication of the names Papilio nemausiaca Esper and Papilio lachesis Hübner, has shown that the former was published three years after the latter. Therefore, Melanargia lachesis (Hübner, 1790) is reinstated as the valid name for the European satyrine species previously known as Melanargia nemausiaca (Esper, 1789).
