THREE NEW SYNONYMS OF SATYRINAE (LEPIDOPTERA, NYMPHALIDAE) FROM WESTERN CHINA

R.V. Yakovlev

Abstract


The article establishes three new synonyms of Nymphalidae (Satyrinae) Minois undate ChouYuan & Zhang, 2001 = Satyrus ferula liupiunschani O. Bang-Haas, 1933, syn. nov., Boeberia polyommata ChouYuan &Zhang, 2001 = Satyrus ferula liupiuschani O. Bang-Haas, 1933, syn. nov. and Erebia karamayensis ChouYuan & Zhang, 2001 = Arethusana arethusa ([Denis & Schifermüller], [1775]), syn. nov. The discovery of Lyelamacmahoni Swinhoe, 1908 on the territory of NW China is disproved.
